The Harmonic & melodic Implementations of the Locrian Natural 2 Scale

Everybody know the locrian scale or the locrian mode. It is the seventh mode of the major scale and the second mode of the natural minor scale. The locrian scale is very much in use on top of half diminished chords (minor 7b5 chords) just because of scale degree no. 5, which is not a perfect fifth but a diminished fifth, meaning b5. However, many musicians prefer to use the locrian natural 2 scale, which is the 6th mode of the melodic minor scale, over a half diminished chord just to avoid the b2 scale degree of the locrian scale. Check out the video clip for more info.
