Ex­am­pleS MIXOLY­DIAN 6THS

Exam ple 6 Next, in bars 25 and 26 we take the three-note mo­tif of the pre­vi­ous two ex­am­ples and in­ject some rhyth­mic vari­a­tion. Then, in bar 27 we see a se­ries of de­scend­ing 6ths taken down through the scale while stay­ing within the same area of the neck (ver­ti­cal mo­tion); this is, ef­fec­tively, the op­po­site to the prin­ci­ple demon­strated in bar 4.

Exam ple 7 With th­ese coun­try-style 6ths each mo­tif is fol­lowed by the same open first string (pedal note), trans­form­ing each two-note mo­tif into a three­note one. Use the pick if you pre­fer it over hy­brid style, but you won’t get that coun­try ‘snap’ that comes from pluck­ing the notes on the first string with an up­ward mo­tion of the sec­ond pick­ing hand fin­ger.
