The harmonic structure of a piece in minor key
In the lesson today we are going to look at an extremely important aspect:
How to build the harmony of a music piece with chords on the harmonic minor scale.
One of the main faults of people when starting to put into practice the concepts of harmony is to concentrate principally on major keys, leaving out other possibilites offered by the world of minor harmonic scale.
In this lesson you will learn how to move around in this new world. We will speak of various things:
– How to use functional harmony on harmonic minor scale
– Build harmonic progressions obtaining balance and harmony
– Which inversions should be used more frequently on harmonic scale?
– How to obtain very interesting musical results using harmonic patterns

|2. How to use effectively harmonic patterns
|3. The seventh degree chord (minor harmonic scale)
