Correct Scales to Use For the Chords to All the Things You Are

I have received some questions about which scale is the proper scale to use for the different types of chords found within the song All the Things You Are. Here you go:

Minor 7: Dorian

Dominant 7: Mixolydian (Same as Major with flatted 7th)

Major 7: Ionian (your normal major scale)

Diminished: Whole–Half Diminished Scale

Half Diminished: Locrian #2, the sixth mode of melodic minor
