i made this little thing for school on a midi sheet music program, then i played it on guitar, and what i played is no scale that this site could find, so is it not a scale or can the reverse scale tool just not find it? here is what it is

I dont even need to look at the notes to see it's A minor.
The problem for the scale finder is probably that you use G and G#, because the scale finder sticks to 1 version.
Minor scales are free in interpetation of sevens and sixes. Meaning the same piece can easily have a minor and major 7 and 6.

A harmonic minor has a F G# and A natural minor has a F G and A melodic minor has a maj F# G#.
When playing something in minor you can use these interchangeable.
Obviously there are styles where a more focused aproach is prefered.

The scale finder only recognizes the individual scales, not the "minor" as a scale to be used with all 3 versions.
