Last week my teacher introduced me to the theory behind the Harmonic minor
scale. I had been noodling with it unknowningly for years to show off, but his lesson helped make it gel.
I layed down a heavy backing track with the drum machine last night and started wailing away on a chord progression
I came up with. It works with A Harmonic Minor, then changes to A aolian.
I think I'll develop it into a “prog-style” song. That should be fun...
I realize the playing is a bit spotty. I felt like I was “in the zone” earlier that evening, but I was clipping the VU meters all over the place and had to scrap my first takes. Of course when I though I got the recording levels right, the touch was gone... it's just noodling anyway.
