One of the most important scales you can learn as a modern guitarist is melodic minor.

It can be used to solo over just about every chord type, including m7, 7th, 7alt, and more.

Because this scale is so commonly used and versatile over chords it’s a must-know scale for every guitarist to have under your fingers.

While you may know that melodic minor is an essential scale, you might not know how to get started with this sound in your practice routine.

In this lesson, you learn how to play melodic minor and how to apply it to ii-V chords, V7alt chords, and Im7 chords.

These chords are used in the jazz standard Autumn Leaves, so as a bonus you learn how to apply this scale to every chord in that jazz standard.

That’s a win-win in the practice room if I ever saw one.

Have fun as you learn how to play melodic minor, how to apply it to common chords, and build up to using it over Autumn Leaves in this lesson.
