Harmonic Minor / Hybrid Scale"

  • The Harmonic Minor Scale is very noticeable when used. It seems to jump out at you and grab your attention.
  • The sound of the Harmonic Minor Scale is usually either immediately liked, or takes some time to acquire the taste for this attention grabbing scale
  • Much of the Neo Classical sound comes from this type of scale, or a hybrid of it.
  • You'll notice in the video that this scale is rather dark and has high tension building tendencies.
  • It doesn't take much of this scale to get the point across.
  • Experiment with trills along this scale because it really lend itself to that technique and adds a touch of the classical element in as well.
  • Practice releasing the tension after you've played 10 - 15 seconds of the harmonic minor.
  • Being able to resolve the tension is one of the biggest parts of gaining control over this scale.
