The notes of the harmonic minor scale are almost the same as the notes from the natural minor scale. The only difference between these two is that the 7th note from the harmonic minor is raised a half step (semitone) making an augmented second (a whole and a half step - WH) between the 6th and 7th note.

     The pattern that gives the harmonic minor scale its sound is: WS - HS - WS - WS - HS - WH - HS.
