GUITAR THEORY: The Aeolian Dominant Scale Andrew for FREE lesson Handouts.This Video: June 29, 2012 | Search Videos by Title/Date.GO TO: Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question...Q: After doing a bunch of Google searches I still can't find any kind of a decent guitar lesson covering a scale called, "Aeolian Dominant." I hope you can cover this scales construction and harmony. I'd like to be able to write a song with it because Joe Satriani uses it. Thanks for your lessons.Rich -- London, EnglandA: This scale is actually a mode of the Melodic Minor scale. And, it also has quite a few names that it will go by as well. When I first learned it, I was a student at the Musicians Institute (G.I.T.) and we were shown it as the Mixolydian b6. Other names for it are the; Hindu scale, Mixolydian b13, and it is also sometimes called the Aeolian #3rd. As we've done in past video lessons with many of the other scales we've examined, I begin with a breakdown of the essential theory involved with this very cool mode built off of the 5th degree of the Ascending Melodic Minor scale.
