Hey guys I used to play some piano and when we used to do Melodic minor scales we would go up melodic and then come down descending natural minor . I hadn’t noticed this for guitar scales!

Can anybody tell me why the scales are played ascending melodic and decsending natural minor on piano and on guitar why melodic is played the same ascending and descending???? Or am I totally wrong and we also ascend then descend natural minor on guitar as well??????

Forgive me if I have totally misunderstood

Hi, I just saw a video where Pebber explains this exact issue (at 25:30).



So it's basically basically a diference between classical and modern music as I understand it.

The practice of playing melodic minor descending with a b7 and b6 was abandoned by Mozart and Beethoven. This was almost 200 years ago.
