Video Transcript:
PETE PIDGEON: "Here we're going to discuss the perfect fifth interval. Back to the major scale here. Got the first note, second note, third note, fourth note, fifth note. Now this interval shape is very very common. It's one string down two frets up. So if we take that shape, it's going to be the same all the way down the neck until we hit that B string. Stretch it out by one fret and then it's o.k. from the B to the E string because we haven't landed on or crossed over the B string. We started on the B string and that's fine. Now when we get to fifths, now it becomes practical that we can actually find the same note five frets back on the next string down. So let's go back five frets to this note here. Notice these are the same, instead of playing the interval this way we could play the interval this way. Now we can play it the same there but now we're going to land on the B string stretch it up one fret. Now we're going to cross over the B string. Make sure your interval is up one fret."
