I'm teaching electric guitar to a chap who has developed a love for music theory and playing classical and neo-classical pieces. He has requested some more minor work and further explanation of the minor systems. He is familiar with modal play in a major context and so I'm now looking for a piece or study which illustrates well the use of the melodic minor scale showing how it differs from the aeolian mode of the relative major scale. Any ideas?

John Patitucci has a book about melodic minor scales, called 60 melodic etudes which is pretty good, but it is for 6-string electric bass. Maybe you could get a few examples from there
