Don't know how many people here play instruments. This thread can be a total fail. But if you got anything worth sharing, thoughts etc
Post it here. 

Questions are welcomed. 

Created this thread after learning how to apply a Harmonic minor scale into a ii7b5-V7-i7 Chord progression and it sounded a whole lot better than a regular minor scale in there.

In essence, the harmonic minor scale is the same as the minor scale except that the 7th stays major to satisfy the V7 chord.

I'm still learning the piano. I keep stopping with my lessons though so it's hard for my to retain all that I've learned.
Think I'm just going to try to teach myself. One of my teachers got really sick so she had to stop teaching and after that I got my friend to teach me but she left for school.


Anyone know how difficult it'll be to teach yourself the sax? That's the one instrument along with the cello that I really want to learn to play

This is what my guitar teacher told me to remember the order of sharps.
