Minor Scale Pattern

This is the universal pattern for a minor scale. 

'Youke' can discover a minor scale by starting on any note and following this whole- and half-step pattern. 

Compare and contrast the minor scale to the major scale pattern.
Note: This is the natural minor scale. To create a harmonic minor scale, which sounds a bit more mysterious or tense, raise (sharp) the seventh note  a half-step (change so to si).

You get to use your fourth finger in the fourth fret for A-flat.
