D minor: D, E, F, G, A, Bb, C
C minor: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb


Since it's in D minor, you're playing something D because it resolves to D. Comparing the two scales, the difference is that C minor has and Eb and Ab. So you know it has to be D something and have Eb and Ab whilst being over D minor.

natural minor: 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, b6, b7

then add the Eb and Ab which happen to be the b2 and b5 to get the intervals:
1, b2, b3, 4, b5, b6, b7

Those are the intervals to Locrian. That means you're playing D locrian.

Remember: The harmony defines the melody, not the other way around. If the harmony says *this* the melody can't change that.

Shit, that's what I meant. Damn xanax and not thinking whilst posting. *fixes above post*
