the harmonic minor scale is the same as the natural minor scale, except the last note (the seventh) is raised half a step.

so Cm is C D Eb F G Ab Bb and C

then C harmonic minor is C D Eb F G Ab B and C

The iv is minor and the VI is major.

You would generally use harmonic minor as a substitution for natural minor. A common progression is Am G F E. Am G F is pure natural minor, but the E chord comes from A Harmonic minor.

Scales should always be understood as derivations of their major scale as well.

For instance, C major is C D E F G A B; the intervals are 1 2 3 4 5 6 7. C harmonic minor is C D Eb F G Ab B; its intervals are 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7.

It would be uncommon and misleading to say that, compared to the minor scale, harmonic minor is 1 2 3 4 5 6 #7 as #7=8=1, making it a 6-tone scale which you don't mean.

Is the new sign for "Theory Sticky"? If so, I support.

^Oh nothing, just the fact there happens to be a search bar.

edit: i didn't know the harmonic minor scale was covered in the sticky? if so i'm even more annoyed.

Harmonic minor is just a minor scale with a sharped 7th. Not sure about power chords.


Like BGC said, you should refer to the major scale when comparing it so that you end up with 1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7; it's more accurate to call it a natural seventh, because raising the seventh degree implies you've arrived back at the tonic.
