GuitarBlog: Jazz Minor Scale

Jazz Minor Scale

This weeks GuitarBlog explores the melodic use of the,"Jazz Minor Scale"

This week on the GuitarBlog we take a look at the sound and application of the Jazz Minor Scale. This scale is essentially an ascending Melodic Minor scale. However, it has some really interesting uses over common jazz progressions like the II - V - I. 

Additionally, Jazz Minor can operate nicely in specialized styles of jazz music, (such as Jazz Fusion), functioning as a stand alone scale. Enjoy the video!

  1. I like the sound of this scale on that Jazz Fusion style. The progression is choppy yet has interesting twists and turns to it. Sort of reminds me of Steely Dan's music. Thanks!
