    # means 'sharp', whereas 'b' would mean flat. Sharp basically means a fret forward and flat means a fret back. So G# can also be called Ab, i.e., A flat. # doesnt mean major or minor. But when its G#, i.e., G#major it would be played like:
    4
    4
    5
    6
    6
    4
    and a G#minor would be played like:
    4
    4
    4
    6
    6
    4
    It's a minor alteration from G# to G#minor.............. but you would barre the fourth fret.

    (it's not as confusing as i make it sound............:) )
