The melodic minor is taught as one of the three main minor scales, yet, in practice, it is a far rarer beast than its Harmonic and Natural minor counterparts. However, that said, it does make an appearance in many classical pieces and jazz standards, and you will also spot it hiding in a handful of pop songs!
