6 Degrees of Separation

Major and Minor 6th Lick Voicings

New voicing, who dis? In the second half of this lick, we leave out the notes on the B string. For this voicing we have the Root note on the high D string. The note on the G string is the second chord note, also known as a third. Because the low root has been left out, the relationship between the third and the root has changed. Instead of being 3 scale degrees apart(i.e. C - D - E - F - G - A - B - C), they're now 6(i.e. C - D - E - F - G - A - B - C). That's why that interval(distance between notes) is called a sixth.
