Hi, I have been playing guitar for a little over 3 years and I have just recently started to study music theory. I was wondering if anyone could tell me why when you are building a B Augmented chord, why the G# becomes an F and not an A?

Hi, all theory questions go in Musician Talk.

And frankly, your question made no sense,

+1. It seems you really should study more of your theory, it will all become clear in time

Yes, go to musician talk. There's so much wrong with your understanding I don't even know where to start. Tertian triads might be the way to go. Chords consisting of three notes stacked in thirds. Your B augmented chord would be B D# Fx (double sharp). You keep the B D and F regardless of the quality of the chord. EG minor would be B D F#, major B D# F# augmented B D# Fx and diminished B D F.

Yes, F double sharp is the same pitch as G but they don't have the same meaning.

Okay, and I'm sorry, this is the first time I post on here, so I wasn't sure as to where to post, and like i said, I have only started to study music theory, so I do apologize if my question didn't make sense, or if it was worded all wrong.
