Guitar Lesson on Hexatonic Scale - Guitar Lick with Hexatonic Scale - Part IV

How’s it going, guys? My name is John McClennan
and I’m here with,
bringing you this lesson. This is our
last installment on the hexatonic scale.

We’ve covered from all the way down here
to the 2nd fret, and now we’re ending up
here on the 14th fret, which gives us the
whole range of the instrument with some
good vocabulary, some patterns to practice
that utilize this sound, the hexatonic.

Now, the hexatonic, just to review,
is your major scale with the fourth
note taken out. So here’s the lick.

We’re going to start up here on the 14th
fret and we’re going to go 14, 15, 14, 12
and then 15, 12, 14, 12 slide to 11 and
then we’re going to go chromatically up
to the 14th fret. Back down to the 11th
and 14, 12, 14. So here it is slowly.
So there is your basic lick.

And then the chord, you could play — here’s
a G major 7: 12, 12, 12, 14. Again,
a jazz voicing. It’s rootless because your
bass player is going to cover the root note.
So that’s a nice chord. And then again,
it shows you right where the lick starts
as one of the notes right within the chord.
So when you play a solo you have to
outline the chord. This automatically
visually connects the two together.

And then, of course, we can start over
here with our very first lick that we
learned down here. But the point is we’re
covering positions so you can learn to play
from one position of the guitar to the next.
So practice those patterns and click the link below.

We’ll see you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
