  • Hi GMC! This is the second lesson of the Dominant Series. Here we are going to dig deeper into the sound of the melodic minor. I've made phrases in A lydian b7 and A mixolydian b6 to play over the A7. Like in the previous lesson I play one scale over the A7 then comes the D7 chord (where I play D mixolydian) and when the A7 comes again I play the other scale that we are learning here.

    The progression is: A7-D7

    A lydian b7 (E melodic minor) - A -B -C# -D# -E -F# -G -A (this scale add the tensions: #11)*

    A mixolydian b6 (D melodic minor) – A -B -C# -D -E -F -G -A (this scale add the tensions: b13)*

    *I explain the tensions comparing to the A mixolydian (the scale where the A7 comes from).
