The Locrian Natural 6 Mode - Guitar Diagrams and Theory
The Locrian natural 6 mode
What's the Locrian natural 6 mode ?
The Locrian natural 6, also known as Locrian 13 or Locrian #6 or harmonic natural mode 2, is the second mode of the harmonic minor scale. It is built the same way as the Locrian mode, but with a natural 6 instead of a b6. It is composed of the following intervals : 1 - b2 - b3 - 4 - b5 - 6 - b7. It is a rarely heard-scale which can be played anywhere that you used to play the Locrian mode, generally over half-diminished chords.

Comparison between the Locrian modes
It is important not to confuse with the Locrian #2 mode that is the sixth mode of the melodic minor scale. The Locrian #2 mode has the same notes as the locrian mode (the seventh mode of the major scale) but with a major second (2) in place of the minor second (b2). Considering that we can add the Locrian bebop scale to this list, it makes a total of 4 important half-diminished scales (Locrian modes) to know.
