You got me confused.... by the above statement that G minor is A major.

A Dorian minor is the second mode in the G major scale.

Remember there are several different minor scales to choose from and to use in certian chord progressions. Learn the harmonized major scale and it's resulting chords and you'll unlock the mystery of knowing what scale/mode to play and what key you really are in.

Yeah, like....G minor is relative to A# or Bb major...whoopsie dasie!

I'm curious, what does the Harmonized Major really refer to? Just knowing every major scale by heart? or what?

Take any major scale and harmonize it in thirds. You'll end up with 7 different chords that are all related and in the same key. You find most songs and progressions use chords from this structure.

You know that Gm is the relative minor chord and scale to the key of Bb. The relative minor is based off the 6th degree (G is the 6th degree of the Bb major scale). So what are the other chords related in the key of Bb major?

C minor,
D minor,
D#/Eb major,
F major,
and back to G minor....and A dim, eh?

Thanks for explaining what a 'harmonized major scale' is :)
