ExAmPLE5: taRGetinG the 6th
The major 6th (E) adds a sophisticated edge to the sound and players like Larry Carlton and Robben Ford are fond of including it. This solo demonstrates how the major 6th can be included in few different ways. The opening idea uses the 6th to both start and end the phrase. In bar six, the E note is used as a pedal tone against which other notes are played. In bar 10 the 6th is used as a bending point.
