Yes,I talk about "A minor natural".Reading the first post,it is simply mention "Am".
Definition for melodic and harmonic minor as you wrote have the accidentals in it.
Definition:"A harmonic minor scale differs from a natural minor scale in that the seventh note is raised one semitone both ascending and descending. Melodic minor scales raise both the sixth and seventh notes one semitone when ascending, and descends like the natural minor scale".
I guess we use melodic here as we play the E major chord (it has G#, seventh note which is raised).
