E Natural Minor (Aeolian mode) Guitar Scale

We can create an incredible amount of guitar scales from any given tone. It may just be endless. Ultimately, all scales are a division of an octave, or any interval determined by cultural decisions.
We can create an E Natural minor scale by using our knowledge of Derivative vs. Parallel in this E Linear Major lesson. We can use scale formulas by comparing or paralleling to what was previously derived.
Using the E Major (Linear) to make these comparisons, parallels, modifications (MODS), we build other types of scales (in this lesson, the E Natural minor).
The Major scale pattern numbers the tones for a given ROOT. We then modifiy (MOD) tones in the Major scale to get new type of scales (using formulas)..

TAB for E Natural minor

The Root, 2, 4, 5, stay the same, while the 3, 6, & 7 tones are lowered.

We can clearly see the differences. The 3, 6, & 7 have been lowered a fret.
If a tone is a sharp before it is flatted, it becomes a natural. If it is a natural before it is flatted, it becomes a flat. If the tone is a flat before it is flatted, it becomes a double flat.
