The next scale we are going to learn is the F sharp minor harmonic scale. The notes to the scale are F#, G#, A , B, C#, D, F, and F#. After you've got the notes memorized, continue on and I'll show you the fingering.
Starting with the second finger of the right hand, hit the F#. From there hit the G# with the third finger, cross the thumb under to hit the A. Continue until the third finger gets to the C#, then cross the thumb under to hit the D. Finish the scale with the third finger on the F#. Walking back down the scale uses the same fingering in reverse.
The left hand starts on the fourth finger and works it's way to the thumb. When the thumb hits the B, cross over with the third finger to hit the C#. When the thumb reaches the F, cross the second finger over to finish the scale on the F#. Repeat the process in reverse to come back down the scale.
