Music Theory QuickThink: 

-          The ascending pattern of a natural-minor scale is WHWWHWW

-          One octave minor scales start and end on the same pitch an octave apart (although scale can extend multiple octaves).

-          Each note letter is used in a minor scale, and it is used only once (aside from the first and last note).

-          Notate the starting pitch, name each note in ascending order between the octave (ex. B, C, D, E, F, G, A, B)

-          Apply accidentals as needed to maintain the WHWWHWW pattern. (Ex. B, C#, D, E, F#, G, A, B)
