Practical Magic: Applying Altered Dominant Scale in Heavy Metal Guitar

This is an interesting mode. I think I would need to hear it being used before I could apply it in my own playing though.



While I'm sure it's just an editorial oversight, the scale formula listed above is incorrect. Altered dominant/super locrian is a seven-note scale spelled 1-b2-b3-b4-b5-b6-b7. Almost identical to the locrian mode, save a lowered 4th.
