Video Transcript:
PETE PIDGEON: "Here we'll discuss the minor sixth interval. Now the minor sixth could also be referred to as the augmented fifth. You'll see that as 5 written on sheet music. Now let's go back to that fifth interval we talked about the one, two, three, four, fifth note of a major scale. This note here, one fret higher than that would be either an augmented fifth. Which is a fancy way of saying sharp or up one fret or you could say the sixth note down one fret which would be a minor sixth. So again we can use this shape as we go up the neck until we get to the B string. Stretch it out one fret then you're back to normal when you get to the B string. However a more practical way of doing that would be, say we're starting on this note here an A. Instead of playing this note here we'll go back five frets, we'll find it right here and we can play the interval this way. Then when you get to the B string raise it up and you cross over the B string raise it up as well and it's much easier to play."
