Harmonized Half Diminished Scales

Harmonized Half Diminished Scales

Greetings JazzPianoSkills Fam!

In previous podcast episodes, I outlined how to harmonize the Major, Dominant, and Minor scales. This week we continued our harmonization exploration and tackled the Half Diminished Scale. I am not sure why this is the case but, the Half Diminished Scale (Locrian Mode) and the Diminished Scale (7th Mode Harmonic Minor) are rarely discussed, studied, and practiced; especially, when compared to the attention Major, Dominant, and Minor scales (Modes) receive. This may indeed be the norm but not at JazzPianoSkills!
