Minor scales

Post by danzack on Mon Dec 29, 2008 5:18 pm

Hi, can you give me advice which Minor scale i have to start first. I know there are 3 kinds of minor scales: natural, harmonic and melodic. I have already finished major scales, so i have to start with minors, but i dont know which one to choose.
Thanks in advance.

Lol I just found the pattern for minor scales, I guess. It's:

1, 1/2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1/2

This is for melodic minor scales, just lower the 6th and 7th...(what's the term?) by 1/2 to get the natural. I'm not sure about this though.

And to get the minor chord of any note just copy it's same note's major chord and lower the 3rd...(what's the term again??) by 1/2 .

Ex.

C major = C E G
C minor = C Eb G

I'm not really sure about this though, but the way I observed it, I saw it that way. Can someone confirm this? I'm really having a hard time learning minor scales. Neutral
