    OBJECTIVES AND PURPOSES

    The purpose of this book is the intensive study of the Melodic Minor Scale, which is of significant importance

    in our journey with music.

    Normally we focus on the study of this or any scale by memorizing only the different shapes up and down,

    but this way of studying is insufficient when we want to improvise or appreciate the color or texture it

    produces.

    That is why we are going to devote ourselves to develop the study of the 7 shapes through exercises in a

    practical and dynamic way including the corresponding fingerings and bar repetition in each case.

    METHODOLOGY

    Includes 24 exercises with full fingering, repetition bars and practice tracks

    * Diatonic Order – Up and Down ( a – b )

    * Patterns 1 y 2

    * Thirds ( a – b – c – d ) (only in Paid version)

    * Fourths ( a – b – c – d ) (only in Paid version)

    * Sixths ( a – b – c – d ) (only in Paid version)

    * Triads ( a – b – c – d ) (only in Paid version)

    BACKING TRACKS

    It also includes 10 Backing Tracks corresponding to the exercise in a modal playing as well as, different

    progressions which will be very useful to practice and affirm this concept.

    * 6 Modal backing tracks Cm/maj7 & Gm/maj7 (with strings and different musical styles) (only in Paid version)

    * 2 Modal Backing Tracks (with chord progressions) (only in Paid version)

    * 2 Backing Tracks with Cycle of 5th (in different musical styles) (only in Paid version)

    Melodic Minor Scale (Néstor Crespo)

    Considerations

    1. Also known as minor bachiana or minor jazz is the one that ascends and descends the same way

    2. Unlike the Natural Minor Scale, has the major 6 and the major 7 and with respect to the Harmonic Minor the major 6.

    3. Its application is centered on the tonic chord ( I ) in the minor mode, chord m / maj7 or m�.

    4. The harmonic tensions allowed are major 9 and major 6.

    5. The perfect 11 is a harmonic tension to be avoided because together with the 7M, it forms the tonal tritone (F-B)
