Watch the Mixing Sixths online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from 50 Jump Blues Licks You MUST Know
Freddie King often featured sixth intervals in his instrumentals and solos. In jump blues we derive these from the mixolydian scale. Quite a challenge to insert these intervals in your playing, because when the chord changes, the underlying mixolydian scale has to change too. This lick uses a string of sixth intervals on the I chord to glide into the IV chord.
