I love the sound of the ch[ord F#min11...but I don't knowwhich chords and scales to use in with...i was wondering if some of the more experionced players on this site could help me?

Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

Big deal, I bought a hamster once and they put that in a box...doesn't make it a scale.

min11 = 1, b3, 5, b7, 9, 11

SO, the scales that will fit are-
Dorian - 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, 6, b7 (very nicely)
Aeolian - 1, 2, b3, 4, 5, b6, b7 (may fit, dont know about the b6)

If you didnt play the 9th of the chord, Phrygian would fit quite well..... i only say that because i was playing phrygian last night and its awesome

Obviously the actual scale would be F# Dorian.
notes - F#, G#, A, B, C#, D#, E

D is the 6th note of F# minor (Aeolian), yes. But Dorian has a major sixth, D#.

Try using it as part of a ii - V (F#m11 - B7) or ii - V -I (F#m11 - B7 - EΔ.

It's describing a chord progression used a lot in jazz, ii - V7 - I. You can use F#min11 as the ii chord in the key of E major.
