Did you hear that? That is communication at its most basic.
Now, we can ignore the second mode of the Minor+Major 7 scale because it is not in common usage. As you can see from the graph, it is a perfectly good scale but there is no chord symbol in common usage that calls for it. While we are at it.
Let us look at the fifth mode of a Minor+Major 7 scale. Same story here, there is no commonly used chord symbol that calls for this scale either.
The second and fifth modes for the Minor+Major 7 scale are known as the “Lonely Modes”. They have no home, nobody uses them.
