These chords also have other names. A Bm7♭5 is also a Dm6 and a G9/no root. So this scale can be used on these chords as well.

Here I’m going to play the B Locrian sharp 6 over a Bm7♭5 chord.

Locrian ♯6 List

The E♭ and D♯ modes are the same pitch just written different. This is where I switched to the sharp keys.

The Formula

1-♭2-♭3-4-♭5-6-♭7

This one isn’t too helpful. Here is the locrian formula.

1-♭2-♭3-4-♭5-♭6-♭7

Make the ♭6 of the Locrian mode a natural(up one fret) and you have it.

Sometimes its just easier to think of this as mode 2. The harmonic minor but start on the 2nd note.

In the key of A minor it’s easy because all you need to remember is the G is sharp and everything else is natural.
