Daily Practice 15: Melodic Minor Modes

Although I believe there is a limit to value of practicing and understanding chord scale theory, the melodic minor scale is so prevalent in jazz improvisation and composition, I think that it’s important and relevant for the developing improviser to learn these modes in all keys.

Here’s a PDF and an mp3 of all the melodic minor scales and the modes.  I made a call on the en-harmonic spellings in the various keys in an attempt to make each mode easier on it’s own.  You can play along with or sing along to the mp3 for ear training and to help you hear if and when you are making a mistake in a scale or mode
