ExAmPLE5: taR­Get­inG the 6th

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: THEORY -

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.
