• 1 - 2 = Whole step<br> • 2 - 3 = Half step<br> • 3 - 4 = Whole step<br> • 4 - 5 = Whole step<br> • 5 - 6 = Half step<br> • 6 - 7 = Augmented 2nd step (1 &amp; 1/2 steps)<br> • 7 - 8 = Whole step
Besides raising degree VII (the step from 6 to 7), degree VI (the step from 5 to 6) may also be altered. The resulting scale is called melodic minor scale. The main purpose of this accidental is to facilitate the melodic movement from degree VI to degree VII, avoiding the augmented second that is formed in the harmonic minor scale. This is referred to as the minor melodic scale. It should be noted that it changes when descending, reverting to the natural minor steps.
