Hi belish-me,

                        So I understand your question["what is the methods of playing it"]referring to the minor scale-are you asking about its construction,fingering or something else? A basic "natural" minor scale (ascending) is constructed by going from any note up a tone-semitone-tone-tone-semitone-tone-tone.Minor scales,like all scales,are useful for learning the harmonic and melodic roadmap in a given key or over a given chord.Melodies in a minor key[for example A minor] are usually constructed from the notes of the corresponding minor scale [an A minor scale],in addition to using notes not found in the scale....Two common varistions of the natural minor scale are the harmonic and melodic minor scales.Happy playing,    Will
