Do modes exist in the harmonic / melodic minor scales?
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!
