R, 2, b3, 4, 5, b6, 7 Harmonic Minor scale


I'm sooooooooo confusied so is it WWHWWHW


E||------------------------------------|
B||------------------------------------|
G||---------------------7-9-10-9-7-|
D||----------------6-7-9-10---------|
A||----------5-7-8-------------------|
E||--4-5-7-8------------------------|


If you send me a site that explains how FORMULAS works that would be great.


not scales but formulas.

If you ask a specific question you have about formulas i'm sure the nice people here could help.

The major scale is WWHWWWH

So start at C, a whole step from C is D, another W from D is E, a half step from E is F
etc. And you get C major
C D E F G A B C
These notes correspond to the intervals
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 1

The harmonic minor scale is
1 2 b3 4 5 b6 7 1
So for C harmonic minor, take the 3 and 6 of C major (E and A) and lower them by a semitone
So C harmonic minor is:
C D Eb F G Ab B C

Looking at the steps between these notes, you'll see that Harmonic Minor is CWDHEbWFWGHAbW+HBHC
