Melodic minor scale


The melodic minor scale is the same as the natural minor with the exception that the sixth and seventh tones are raised by a semitone ( half step) when the scale is ascending. When the scale is descending, the melodic minor is the same as the natural minor, e.g.: C, D, E-flat, F, G, A, B, C (ascending)C, B-flat, A-flat, G, F, E-flat, D, C (descending)SCALE STEPS (IN SEMITONES OR HALF STEPS)12345678910111213cdebfgabc'Play Melodic Minor Scale Ascendingcdebfgabbbc'Play Melodic Minor Scale DescendingAlso see minor.
