6th Interval Trick
Using the 6th Interval is a great way to improve your solo and fill techniques.
What is the 6th Interval?
You can have a major 6th (M6) and a minor 6th (m6) but we are not going to talk about that right now. All you need to know is:
- The scale
- How to count to 6
Since we are in the Key of C we will use that for our example.
C SCALE: C D E F G A B
Starting at “C” as 1, now count up to 6. You should end up at “A”. With your right hand put your thumb on C and your pinky on A. A 6th! Go team. Now keep that same spacing in your hand and move up and down the scale. If you moved up one note you should now be at a D and a B.
What are fills?
A fill is something that “fills” up the spaces in a song. If the singer is not singing or an instrument is not playing a lead line or solo then someone should do a “fill” to fill up the space. This will help keep the music interesting and take you one more step closer to sounding like a pro.
