Welcome to another tutorial!

This time we’ll be dealing with an interval called the sixth. Just to give you a brief theoretic explanation: an interval is the distance of the pitches of two notes. The sixth (unlike the fifth or fourth) is not a perfect interval, so we either get: 

-         a major sixth: equals distance between root and 6th note of the major scale (9 half steps) or

-         a minor sixth: equals distance between root and 6th note of the minor scale (8 half steps)

Now this interval, as any interval, has a very distinct sound and is all over the guitar vocabulary. So it’s definetly worth putting some studying time into that! See you in the next part of the tutorial!
