k this is a follow up question to my last thread
so if harmonic minor is 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7
and Emaj is E F# G# A B C# D# E
shouldnt that make Em harmonic E F# G A B C D#?
in my other post someone said its E F# G A B C# D..

Yes that's right.
It's E natural minor (E F# G A B C D) with a restored maj7 (E F# G A B C D#)

The one the other person posted is the upwards (?) run of E melodic minor scale.
No E Melodic minor is E F# G A B C# D# (it is natural minor with restored 7 like harmonic minor and with the addition of the restored 6.)

The one the other posted is E Dorian 1 2 b3 4 5 6 b7.

I was taught that melodic minor was (for example in E) E F# G A B C# D# ascending, and E D C B A G F# descending

That's right. The other person didn't say "D#" as well though - so it's not the ascending E melodic minor like you said, rather E dorian like 20Tigers said.

Don't forget that melodic minor is often played the same way ascending and descending. It was just traditionally melodic up and natural down.
