Okay, continuing along in fourth position,
we've been playing mostly
in the aeolian mode,
I'd like to introduce you to
another scale that you can do
in fourth position,
it's called the harmonic minor.
You hear that the seventh note,
instead of being flatted, is raised.
So that it fits with the five chord,
that's why it's called the harmonic minor.
Because E is the five chord of A minor.
So, with this mode, you can play
lots of different kinds of music.
And play over more
chord changes in a minor key.
So, for example, if I were to play
Softly as in a Morning Sunrise,
a very famous jazz tune, in this key,
it would sound like this.
See I'm using
the harmonic minor,
that raised seventh.
[SOUND] And even bending to it.
[SOUND] To the octave,
from the raised seventh.
And then we're in the major
scale, the relative major.
It's called C.
And then the chord change is A seven.
I can play
Using the raised seventh
of the harmonic minor of A.
you can also play
Middle Eastern sounding things.
By playing the different
modes of the harmonic minor.
You can hear that this a sound,
it's sort of a familiar sound,
I'm sure, to many of you.
Eastern European music because if
you take the harmonic minor scale.
And play the modes of that scale,
just like we've played
the modes of the C major scale,
especially the fourth and
fifth modes of the A harmonic minor scale,
you get scales that are used very
much in Eastern European music.
Greek music, Bulgarian
music, Hungarian music.
starting on D.
The fourth hole.
So that six hold draw bend
now becomes the sharp fourth.
It's the same notes as playing it from A,
but now it's a sharp fourth of D.
It's kind of like the Dorian
mode with the sharp fourth.
