The Harmonic Minor

The intervals are:


Number of semitones:


The degrees are:

R (Root)-2-b3-4-5-b6-7-8

The scale is found in many musical genres such as Jazz, Metal, Manouche Jazz and classical music and so much more…

My favorite chord progression to practice this scale over is by far the Andalusian Cadence. If you want to try it, check out this post where I shared a backing track.
