The rules are the same as for the 'major' scales.
e.g 'Am' starts and finishes on 'A'.
So,  3 draw to 7 draw and then 7 draw up to 11 draw,
then back down the scale.☝☟

henry,

Thanks for posting these ... one suggestion;   remember that these scales don't nedd to "start and end" on their tonic.  For instance, an A minor scale may start on draw 3, but below that are  " C      D      E      F     G " from holes 1, 2 & 3.    btw, just starting any scale on other than the tonic gives you a different scale.  (plaing a C maj. but starting on the 'D' gives you a type of D minor (dorian).  So,  learning one scale gives you ... seven!

thanks for all your contribution!

every minor scale has a 'relative major,' a major scale that uses the same notes.  it begins with the third note of the minor scale.  so, if the notes from A to A form A minor, those from C to C form C major.  if they form E minor, the third note (G) begins G major.  so on and so forth.  you can learn both major and minor scales at the same time.
