I'm going to check my answers after I post this. smile.gif It took me a while to figure this out.


Spoiler:
1. C#/Db (opps, I was thinking 5th string for some reason)

2.E-8th fret
A- 3rd fret
D- 10th fret
G- 5th fret
B- 1st fret
E- 8th fret

3. one sharp (F#)

4. four flats (Ab, Bb, Db, Eb)

5. D Major (forget about the relative key)

6. C Minor

7. G-B-D

8. D-F-A-C

9. F-G-A-A#-C-D-E-F (I'm not really clear on why these are flats? I'm guessing because of the key signatures)

10. C-D-D#-F-G-A-A#-C


EDIT: I looked up the answers. I put a caption by the ones I had incorrect.

Pretty close man! Yeah, those notes are flats becuase when you write out a scale, you can't use the same note twice. So, if you already have an A in the F scale, for example, you can't also have A#, that note has to be some sort of B, so in this case Bb. That's all. Nice work!
