Re: Chord over A minor harmonic scale?

Hello dhodge, Thank you for replying ... I understand the E, B and G#, but why oh why the D? What is it with music theory that is so obsessed with adding a 7th to all the chords all over the place. Even at this following article all the chords from all the scales (except major scales) mostly all hav...

Re: Modes?

Hi Alan, Bof!!! That article is mixing me up..... The article suggests the same thing except in G major key.... here's the quote: "For the Am chord, you can use any minor mode (this time using the A as your tonic) so you could play A Dorian, A Phrygian, A aeolian or combine the three in various ways...
