Jazz Advanced,
Selected Modes of Harmonic Major.
We have been going through
loads of different modes,
the regular uh,modes from the major scale.
Modes from melodic minor and
modes from harmonic minor.
There is another scale,
I will just speak a little bit about.
I will show you two of
the modes from this scale.
It's called Harmonic Major, and
this time we're in the key of A.
So it will be like a regular major scale,
but with a flat 6.
[MUSIC].
Try to find it on one string.
[MUSIC].
Like this.
[MUSIC].
It's an interesting scale.
[MUSIC].
A little too high, too far up.
[MUSIC].
Like.
[MUSIC].
Like.
[MUSIC].
Like that,
you got the notes A, B,
C sharp, D, E, F, G sharp.
[MUSIC].
And A.
So, usually I don't use the basic form of
this mode, it's not one of my favorites.
You can use it but what I like,
I like especially two of these modes,
I like the fourth.
Step, and the fourth step would
be minor, major 7 arpeggio.
[MUSIC].
D, E, or D, F, A, C sharp,
And the scale will be.
And the chord will be quite
an interesting chord, it would be a ma,
minor major 7 sharp 11.
[MUSIC].
Or even this voicing here.
[MUSIC].
So if you will face this chord sometimes,
minor.
Major 7, sharp 11.
It's good to be able to know what
you're gonna play on this chord.
Like, if you have D in the base here.
[MUSIC].
So, it's actually the fourth step of.
A harmonic major.
[MUSIC].
Interesting scale.
So, let's try some fourth note intervals.
Might sound like this.
[MUSIC].
Interesting.
So let's try to play along
with the backing track.
Or this very interesting
chord D minor major 7
sharp 11 fourth step of A harmonic major.
[MUSIC].
Some fourth notes.
[MUSIC].
[MUSIC].
