  1. 9 people have a splitting headache

    I would still use the B natural rather than Cb (since Cb is not the natural third in a G7 chord). I also don’t find it particularly helpful to even think about the so-called “parent” scale of melodic minor, because you would never look at Galt7 and think it is some kind of Ab- sound or function, it is just coincidentally the same notes. But if you find it helpful because you know lots of Ab- melodic minor licks (doubtful), so be it.

    So, there’s a very accomplished guitarist, who has a CV most of us would envy, who spends some time explaining guitar theory – for free – on YouTube to help people to learn the guitar. And 9 people decide to click “dislike”

    Tell you what, could all 9 people please come back on and tell us what you’ve done with your musical career and what you’ve given back for nothing. If it’s more than Justin, all power to you. If it’s less. Well, you work it out.

    is there a chance that might give some playing examples of how to use your altered scales over this 8 bar sequence. |Dm |C#7|G7 |Ab7| A7| Em |Eb7 |A7|
