Ex­am­plE7 Ae­o­lian/har­monic Mi­nor in­ter­change

cd track 68

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

Here we find Me­ola in a more lyri­cal mood with some marginally slower phras­ing that once again show­cases the in­ter­change be­tween A natural Mi­nor (A-B-C-D-e-F-G) and A Har­monic mi­nor (all the same ex­cept G# re­places G). You’ll no­tice that he aligns this tran­si­tion to co­in­cide with the chord of e7 in our pro­gres­sion. Usu­ally this would be an e mi­nor in A mi­nor but our G# al­lows us to cre­ate an e7, thus strength­en­ing the res­o­lu­tion from v7 (e7) to i mi­nor (Am), im­prov­ing the har­mony along the way and thus elic­it­ing the name ‘Har­monic’ mi­nor scale. easy!
