Watch the Changing It Up: Adding The 6th online guitar lesson by Shane Theriot from Solo Mojo
Let's take a fairly basic pentatonic shape and re-finger it to incorporate the 6th. This will "open up" the sound a bit and break you out of playing the same familiar licks. You could also look at this as a Fmin7 arpeggio, but we replace the b7th with the 6th. This "widens" the sound a bit and you can use this new shape as a launching pad for new phrases.
