The fifth step of G melodic minor
is called, D mixolydian flat 6.
The notes are D.
[MUSIC] ,. F-sharp.
[MUSIC] ,. G [MUSIC] ,.
and B-flat.
Same idea as before.
Practice it all over the neck,
maybe on one string to get the feel of it.
Practice the intervals.
This one,
this scale I don't use that often.
I prefer some of the other, and, scales.
If I have a, if I'm playing on a,
a seventh cord,
I prefer to use either Lydian flat seven,
mixer Lydian.
Even symmetrical diminished
that we will speak about later.
And also all, the ultra scale,
super Locrian,
which we'll speak about in a little while.
But this one might be good.
For instance, if you have,
if you're in the key of
G minor you have this chord sequence
like you have a D7,
going to C7.
Instead of just changing then playing
like a D,
playing between D7,
and C7, you can actually.
See that these are related.
That the D seven is the fifth
step of G melodic minor.
And, C seven is the fourth
step of G melodic minor.
So then you can use, on this
this scale.
Mixolydian flat six.
And on the C seven you can
use Lydian flat seven.
And those are actually the same notes.
But, they have different roots and
they are different, different feels to it.
But on the, on the, on, chord,
change, on a chord,
progression like that might be good to
know that you can use these scales.
Something like that.
Otherwise it can be used sometimes
on a 2-5-1-6 Progression.
We gonna speak about that later too.
But then I prefer to use
altered scale instead.
So, but you have the notes.
D, E, F-Sharp, G, A, B-Flat, C, and D.
It's like
Mixolydian scale with a flat six.
This is good, to know about,
but it's not my favorite scale.
But if you want, want,
let's practice, do, some intervals,
and some of these other exercises.
But let's move on to the backing track and
play this one.
D Mixolydian flat sixth,
fifth step of G melodic minor
