I put together a quick theory sheet so that I would remember which notes I was playing as I played them.  I also put the enharmonic Ab scales in as a way of checking myself. Those are on the right hand of each equals sign.  Note that in the descending scale there are no obvious tuning beacons (resonating open strings).  The value in this table was making it up; there are plenty of good graphics files on the scale that can be googled.

G# Major Scale

G# = Ab
A# = Bb
B#=C = C
C# = Db
D# = Eb
E#= F
F## = G
G# = Ab

Melodic Minor

flatten 3d going up, 3d, 6th, 7th going down)

Ascending

G# =Ab
A# =Bb
B =Cb
C# =Db
D# =Eb
E#=F
F##=G
G# =Ab

Descending

G# =Ab
A# =Bb
B =Cb
C# =Db
D# =Eb
E =Fb
F# =Gb
G# =Ab
