what are you confused about?
if your harmonizing the scale, most of the time (you dont have to) people harmonize different riffs with thirds.
so in E harmonic minor say your riff goes: G F# D# E
the other harmony would play: B A F# G
you just count up the scale in thirds
idk if i answered your question...

Ibanez Artcore AF75
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser

wait i think i remember so
the scale is E F# G A B C D#
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
so if i wanted to harmonize by 4ths i would just need to go up 4 notes in the scale so
form
E to B
F# to C
G to D#
A to E
B to F#
C to G
D# to A

right or ?
Edit : I think thats 5ths then ^ not 4ths

okay since its a minor scale I tryed harmonizing by 4ths on guitar pro and it sound minor then i realized it was e harmonic MINOR
so how would i know which is major harmony and which notes are diminished are minor harmonys?

Edit:
okay sorry for so many post but I reread the harmony article and it said
that for a major scale
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
1=Major
2=minor
3=minor
4=Major
5=Major
6=Minor
7=Diminished
so for the E harmonic Minor scale it should be

E =minor
F#= Diminished
G = Major
A = minor
B =minor
C =Major
D#=Major

Is that right?

No. Chords are built by stacking thirds. Take the notes of the harmonic minor scale, construct chords with them, and see what you get. Keep in mind that the only real purpose of the harmonic minor scale is the V chord (harmonic minor is nothing more than a side effect of the use of a V chord in a minor key). You will rarely (if ever) encounter progressions derived from harmonic minor.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

F# - A is a minor third
G - B is a Major third
A - C is a minor third
B - D# is a Major third
