We can think about F sharp minor like F sharp major and then lower the 3rd note, the 6th note and the 7th note, but that's really confusing and it's much easier to think about F sharp minor as just A major starting on F sharp. So, lets review our notes for A major. We'll start with open A, B at the 2nd fret, C sharp, now open D, E on the 2nd fret, F sharp on 4th fret. Now, G sharp. First fret of the G string and finally back to A. If we go back 2 notes to the 6th note of our scale we get to F sharp. And now if we use the same notes from the A major scale we can just play our F sharp minor scale much easier. F sharp, E, D, C sharp, B, A, G sharp, and finally F sharp. Here's what the F sharp minor scale sounds like on a bass guitar. And that's the F sharp minor scale on the bass guitar.
