In this first lesson on Melodic Minor Harmony, we will go through each mode of the scale. I will give you examples from some jazz standards, but also show you how I like to use these chords in my playing. You will find a lot of interesting sounds in this lesson and it is great to learn this scale no matter what style of music you play. In Part 2 we cover more of the minor ii-V-i, parallelism and how to use these chords for reharmonization.
