Harmonic Minor Scale Basics
Let's choose a typical neo-classical progression in A minor and apply our A harmonic minor scale on top of it. The progression we'll use is Am - Am - F - E7b9. We've already seen how our Am and E7b9 chords relate to A harmonic minor. The F chord fits because if we build a chord on top of the 6th note in the A harmonic minor scale, we get F - A - C, which is an F major chord. Note in the example below how we only use notes from the A harmonic minor scale, yet it fits perfectly over all our chords in the progression...
