Watch the 6ths On 5 online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from Solo Factory: Texas Blues

In this lick I’m introducing the popular guitaristic 6ths move. We can also call these inverted 3rds. You don’t know what that means? Don’t sweat it. I’ll explain it more in the video. Get the fingerings down and check out the chromatic moves. We have a chance in this lick to play in patterns 3 and 4. We also breeze by the b5 note as we walk the lick down. This rhythmic example doesn’t have a traditional turnaround like the others. Sometimes fast songs like this won’t end on the V chord in the 12th bar of the blues form. This example does just that.
