Sounds too good to be true, right? There is the major scale, the natural minor scale, the harmonic minor scale, and the melodic minor scale. Now, there is a harmonic major scale?!?
Appears so – I recently found this out. So don’t patronize me for not knowing; I more appreciate the fact that I am learning something new every day.

Not too exciting, but it offers interesting harmonies and vibrant melodic lines, especially for jazz.
Try it out, play around with it, and see what kind of melodies and harmonies you can form with the harmonic major scale.
