I'm having trouble figuring out what scale to use over a chord progression that uses B minor and F# major. I keep 'wanting' to play minor scales over it, but nothing seems to mix exactly. Is it a harmonic minor scale? And if so, which one?
That is a V-i in B minor. The B harmonic minor will work over it, although you might find that B natural minor or B melodic minor work better sometimes.
play b minor over the b chord, and just play the raised 7th of the b minor scale (a#) over f#maj, that way, you arent totally limited to the b harmonic minor scale.
Thanks a bunch, that's been bugging me for the longest time.
