In this post we will look at the F Sharp Major Scale and how to play it in all positions on the guitar.

F Sharp Major has 6 sharps. The notes in the scale are:

F# – G# – A# – B – C# – D# – E#.

F sharp major and G flat major are really the same key, so it is handy to be able to relate to the same scale by using the two different names.
