harmonic minor - Ah, Poor Bird
So far in our lessons we have done songs in natural minor. The natural minor has the same notes as its relative major key (e.g. C major and A minor) with the tonic being "la" rather than "do". In harmonic minor the tonic is still "la", but 7th degree of the scale ("so") is raised a half step. Watch today's lesson to hear the difference between natural and harmonic minors.
