This question needs to be brought back to life.
The answer to the question above is wrong... the chart is right, but the answer is wrong... here is what I got for the melodic minor modes
- Melodic Minor
- Dorian b9
- Lydian Augmented
- Lydian Dominant
- Mixolydian b6
- Aeolian Diminished or Half-Diminished
- Altered Dominant or Superlocrian
Also, if anyone has an easier naming convention, I'd gladly adopt it. I'm not a huge fan of calling a mode by the alterations from another mode... e.g.
Dorian b9... I find a descriptive term like
Lydian Dominant to be much easier to picture. So if you have better names for
Dorian b9 and
Mixolydian b6 that would be great!
