D melodic minor jazz guitar lick | Minor and augmented triads
This jazz guitar lick starts with a descending D minor triad (A-F-D). This minor arpeggio contains the first (D), the minor third (F) and the perfect fifth (A) of the D dorian mode.
We can also see that there two consecutive augmented triads in the first measure.
- C# augmented triad (A-F-C#) (descending)
- A augmented triad (F-C#-A) (descending)
Note the presence of the C# from the D melodic minor scale in the first and the second bar (an octave down).
The melodic minor scale should be played over a minMaj7 chord, but it can also be used over minor chords like m6, m7, m9, m11, m6/9. In this case, be carefull of the major seventh that brings tension when it is played over a minor seventh chord.
The melodic minor scale, compared to the dorian mode, has a major seventh (C#) instead of the minor seventh.
|D dorian mode||D||E||F||G||A||B||C|
|D melodic minor scale||D||E||F||G||A||B||C#|
