I posted an article on 6ths last night...my favorite interval :AOK

>> 6ths Sense <<

When played out of the same position all the way through, 6ths can be a nasty little finger exercise!

John,

I love sixth chords as well and it gives you so much more room for improvisation. Thanks for sharing with us.

Sixths as single note lines can be fun

Egg Radio by Bill Frisell in sixths is a great study.
- couple other intervals in there to keep it interesting.

Play it in 4/4 straight

triplets;
2nd line. 1st bar
2nd line. 4th bar
3rd line. bar 4, beat 3-4
4th lin, 1st bar, big lazy one.

half notes;
line 3, bar 2, 3, 4 connects to triplet on 3rd beat

The rest is straight 8th

that was the song that hooked me. going to see him in march.

I once got the first part of that memory as it was stuck in my head, but I didn't realize that it was in diads like that. pretty cool. I just plucked through the tune..

No, I wrote it out in sixths for this thread.

Friz isn't locked into anything.
