Reeka,

Thanks for the notes - yes I have a minor scale sheet that I was going to post but alas time got away from me. Here it is.

To your question-

The natural minor formula is: X-2-1-2-2-1-2-2
Also remember there are more than one minor scales each with a subtle difference. See the bottom of the sheet.

Thank you Doug, that is fantastic! Yes, I know aobout three kind of minor scales, so I take the one called 'natural minor scale', I think. The other two are derivable according to a rule I just can't tell you by heart.

Reeka,

You are correct - the rule is on the very bottom of the chart.

We should as Ronen to explain how we are to use all these minor scales. That could be helpful....
