    Is there a reason why you describe the melodic minor as a Natural Minor with raised 6th and 7th rather than Dorian mode with only a raised 7th?

    I find it easier to think of raising one note instead of two.

      The Dorian mode is not really a part of tonal harmony so it makes more sense to relate things to different scales related to the minor key instead of a mode which is really something else.
      Does that make sense?
