G Sharp Harmonic Minor Piano Scale

Compton Piano StudioThe key of G sharp minor and B major are related and share the same key signature of 5 sharps, F sharp, C sharp, G sharp, D sharp and A sharp.  G sharp minor is known as the relative minor of B major; B major is known as the relative major of G sharp minor.

G sharp is the 6th note of the B major scale.  The 6th degree of any major scale is always the note which represents the related minor key.

As the keys of B major and G sharp minor are related to each other, they both share the same key signature of 5 sharps.  Therefore the scale of G sharp minor, in its most basic, natural form, will share exactly the same notes as B major but rather than beginning and ending on B (B major) will begin and end on G sharp (G sharp minor).

B major:  B     C sharp     D sharp     E     F sharp    G sharp    A sharp    B

G sharp natural minor:  G sharp   A sharp    B    C sharp    D sharp    E     F sharp    G sharp

To change the natural G sharp minor scale into the harmonic G sharp minor scale

Take the notes of the G sharp natural minor scale and raise the 7th degree, F sharp, by one semitone or half step to F double sharp.   There will still be 5 sharps, F sharp, C sharp, G sharp, D sharp and A sharp, in the key signature but now F double sharp will appear as an accidental on the music staff.

G Sharp Harmonic Minor Scale:

G sharp    A sharp    B     C sharp    D sharp   E     F double sharp    G sharp

G Harmonic Minor Piano Scale

Compton Piano StudioThe key of G minor and B flat major are related and share the same key signature of 2 flats, B flat and E flat.  G minor is known as the relative minor of B flat major; B flat major is known as the relative major of G minor.

G is the 6th note of the B flat major scale.  The 6th degree of any major scale is always the note which represents the related minor key.

As the keys of B flat major and G minor are related to each other, they both share the same key signature of 2 flats.  Therefore the scale of G minor, in its most basic, natural form, will share exactly the same notes as B flat major but rather than beginning and ending on B flat (B flat major) will begin and end on G (G minor).

B flat major:    B flat    C    D     E flat    F    G    A     B flat

G Natural minor:   G    A     B flat    C    D     E flat    F    G

To change the natural G minor scale into the harmonic G minor scale

Take the notes of the natural G minor scale and raise the 7th degree, F, by one semitone or half step to F sharp.   There will still be 2 flats, Bb and Eb, in the key signature but now F sharp will appear as an accidental on the music staff.

G Harmonic Minor Scale:

G    A    B flat    C    D    E flat    F sharp    G

F Sharp Harmonic Minor Piano Scale

Compton Piano StudioThe key of F sharp minor and A major are related and share the same key signature of 3 sharps, F sharp, C sharp and G sharp.  F sharp minor is known as the relative minor of A major; A major is known as the relative major of F sharp minor.

F sharp is the 6th note of the A major scale.  The 6th degree of any major scale is always the note which represents the related minor key.

As the keys of A major and F sharp minor are related to each other, they both share the same key signature of 3 sharps.  Therefore the scale of F sharp minor, in its most basic, natural form, will share exactly the same notes as A major but rather than beginning and ending on A (A major) will begin and end on F sharp (F sharp minor).

A major:  A     B     C sharp     D     E     F sharp    G sharp    A

F sharp natural minor:  F sharp   G sharp   A    B    C sharp    D     E     F sharp

To change the natural F sharp minor scale into the harmonic F sharp minor scale

Take the notes of the natural F sharp natural minor scale and raise the 7th degree, E, by one semitone or half step to E sharp.   There will still be 3 sharps, F sharp, C sharp and G sharp, in the key signature but now E sharp will appear as an accidental on the music staff.

F Sharp Harmonic Minor Scale:

F sharp    G sharp    A    B     C sharp    D    E sharp    F sharp

F Harmonic Minor Piano Scale

Compton Piano StudioThe key of F minor and A flat major are related and share the same key signature of 4 flats, B flat, E flat, A flat and D flat.  F minor is known as the relative minor of A flat major; A flat major is known as the relative major of F minor.

F is the 6th note of the A flat major scale.  The 6th degree of any major scale is always the note which represents the related minor key.

As the keys of A flat major and F minor are related to each other, they both share the same key signature of 4 flats.  Therefore the scale of F minor, in its most basic, natural form, will share exactly the same notes as A flat major but rather than beginning and ending on A flat (A flat major) will begin and end on F (F minor).

A flat major:  A flat    B flat    C    D flat    E flat    F    G    A flat

F Natural minor:   F    G    A flat    B flat    C    D flat    E flat    F

To change the natural F minor scale into the harmonic F minor scale

Take the notes of the natural F minor scale and raise the 7th degree, E flat, by one semitone or half step to E natural.   There will still be 4 flats, Bb, Eb, Ab and Db, in the key signature but now E natural will appear as an accidental on the music staff.

F Harmonic Minor Scale:

F    G    A flat    B flat    C    D flat    E natural    F

E Harmonic Minor Piano Scale

Compton Piano StudioThe key of E minor and G major are related and share the same key signature of 1 sharp, F sharp.  E minor is known as the relative minor of G major; G major is known as the relative major of E minor.

E is the 6th note of the G major scale.  The 6th degree of any major scale is always the note which represents the related minor key.

As the keys of G major and E minor are related to each other, they both share the same key signature of 1 sharp.  Therefore the scale of E minor, in its most basic, natural form, will share exactly the same notes as G major but rather than beginning and ending on G (G major) will begin and end on E (E minor).

G major:  G  A  B  C  D  E  F sharp   G

E Natural minor: E  F sharp   G   A   B   C   D   E

To change the natural E minor scale into the harmonic E minor scale

Take the notes from the natural E minor scale and raise the 7th degree, D, by one semitone or half step to D sharp.   There will still be 1 sharp, F sharp, in the key signature but now D sharp will appear as an accidental on the music staff.
