I was just thinking about this. The chords in the harmonic minor scale are:
i ii* III iv IV VI vii*
What if you made the III the one chord, so it would be:
I iv III IV vii* vi ii*
For example, one chord progression I can up with was:
Cmaj - Emaj - Amin - F G#*
and it sounds pretty good to me.

So, is there a name for this?

that progression is probably going to want to resolve back to A harmonic minor due to the G# at the end of the progression.

It's still the minor scale as the progression isnt going to resolve to the Cmajor chord. And that major chord should be an augmented chord.

It would resolve to C Major because G#* is G# B D F, so it could also be a B* chord.

Non sequitur. What are you saying?
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Ohhh, I didn't know that the III was augmented in harmonic minor.
I guess it doesn't work theoretically, but I still think it sounds pretty good and melodic.

That G# full diminished chord moves better to A minor than C major. Try it.
