I recently started experimenting with the Phrygian dominant scale. As I understand, it is the 5th mode of a harmonic minor scale.
For example an A Phrygian Dominant consists of the notes A-Bb-C#-D-E-F-G. Same as D harmonic minor, right?
I understand the "Phrygian" part of the name, being the 3rd mode of F Major. However, what makes it dominant? Doesn't dominant imply that it is a V chord/scale?
