Harmonic Minor Scale | Diatonic Chords

Completing my previous blog post Major Scale | Diatonic Chords this Keynote presentation deals with the harmonic minor scale and its diatonic chords. The scale- and chord diagrams were created with the fonts Chords and Scales. No images or shapes were used.

Create diatonic seventh chords in a harmonic minor scale by just shifting the root of each 7th chord up a diatonic second.
