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


How’s it going, guys? This is John McClennan
with guitarcontrol.com, excited to bring you
this next lesson here, continuing our series
on the hexatonic scale.

Again, just to recap, the hexatonic is the major
scale with the 4th note taken out. Here’s a lick
in the key of G, coming off a G major 7, and here’s my
chord shape: 5, 7, 7, 7. You may know this chord.
This is sort of the next position up here.
What we’re going to do is we’re going to
play 7, 8, 7, 5, 7, 4, 7, 5, 4, 7, so just
descending down. You can add a pull-off in
there if you want. If you’re swinging it: one-and,
two-and, three-and, four-and, just to get
that sort of jazz flavor.

Notice I’m not playing a major scale.
If I played a major scale it would be…
Which instantly gives me the sound like — that
sounds like I’m going up a ladder, but I just
remove that one note and it instantly sounds
more like a lick. So click the link below,
not necessarily the lick in a bad way, but a melody.
And that’s what we’re after here.

So click the link below for the tab and practice
this lick playing the chord. Here’s the G major 7.
Play the chord and then play the lick and we’ll
see you in the next video. Thanks for watching.
