Lecture Description

In this video lesson, Instructor Pete Pidgeon talks about Major 6th Interval. In music theory, moving a musical note down one string and up four frets on the guitar will produce a major sixth interval.

Video Transcript: PETE PIDGEON: "Here we'll discuss the major sixth interval. Now let's go back to the guitar here. We'll go to the one, two, three, four, five, sixth note of the major scale. So right there from the first note to the sixth note or any note on the guitar that's going to be down one string and up, in this case, one, two, three, four frets would be the interval shape of a major sixth. Now that's quite a stretch so a more practical way to do it would be to take this note. If we're going to start on this note, we're going to go down one string one, two, three, four frets up and we're going to go and put this note on the next string above it by going back five frets. Now we've got this, it's a much easier way to play a major sixth interval. Same thing works if you start from a note on the A string. Now we've hit the B string, raise the interval up by one. Now we've crossed over the B string so continue with that chain."

Course Description

In this course, Guitar Instructor Pete Pidgeon gives 16 video lessons on Guitar Music Theory. We will explain the intricacies involved with guitar intervals within music theory. Pidgeon will begin by explaining what music intervals are and their relation to the neck of the guitar. He'll then begin explaining how to find and create various intervals using the neck of the guitar. Pidgeon will explain the minor second and major second intervals, the difference between perfect and diminished notes, as well as what octaves are and how to locate them. These intervals are great for understanding notation and building upon the foundation of guitar music theory. Watch these videos and begin learning music theory for guitar today.
