Jazz Advanced Dorian Flat 9.
It's time for the next mode.
The second step of the G
melodic minor scale.
It's A Dorian flat 9.
And the chord is actually
just an A minor 7.
But if you take the G melodic minor scale
and start on the A you get this scale.
A, B Flat, C, D, E,
F Sharp, and G and A.
You can do the same here.
Play it just on one string.
And then change it into the next string.
Starting on A.
Like that.
This one is sometimes used over the,
this kind of chord.
Like an A sus flat 9.
As you

Like this
This note,
the F sharp is creating
the tension within the scale.
That is what
makes a difference from
the pure Locrian scale.
let's try to play a little bit on this
A minor chord, and play the scale.
Dorian flat nine,
second step of Melodic Minor, A.
