Here's how to play the G Sharp Minor also known as A Flat Minor Scale on the bass guitar. I'm going to talk about it in terms of G Sharp Minor. So G Sharp Minor, we can think about some G Sharp Major Scale with a lower third note, a lower sixth note and a lower seventh note. But that's just really confusing and it can be a lot easier to think about it as a B Major Scale starting on the sixth note G Sharp. So let's review our B major Scale. B is the second fret of the A string. Now C Sharp, D Sharp first fret on the D string, E on the second fret, F sharp, now G Sharp, first fret of the G string, now A sharp or B Flat, third fret and back to B. If we go back two notes we get back to our G Sharp, and we can play our G sharp and A flat minor scales. So using the same notes, we go down G sharp, F sharp, E, D sharp, C Sharp, D, A sharp or B flat, back to G sharp. So this is what the G sharp or A flat minor scale sounds like.
