How to Sing a Natural Minor Scale
Minor scales are different to major scales, not only because they sound WAY cooler (um, hello dark and ominous music) but because there are so many of them!
While there are just a handful of major scales, with minor scales you can go deep down the rabbit hole and discover a whole world of unusual sounds that remind you of music from other countries or have you feeling the intense pull of a sad song that only a minor scale can deliver.
So, today we’re going to have a look at pitching the NATURAL MINOR scale.
It looks like this: 1 ,2 b3, 4, 5, b6, b7, 8
In the key of C minor it would look like this: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb, C
So how does it sound? Do the exercise with me in the video and find out!
