    These lessons are giving me a better understanding of how to find 6ths for a key. I love the sound of 6ths. I’ve never seen them presented more clearly! I’m encouraged to look for ways to use them now. Mahalo!

    Such useful information!

    This opens a world of possibility. Have been playing with the “trick” some and exploring. Your last observation – that it could be helpful if you wanted to reach a particular position on the fretboard – moves the “trick” to a higher level. Would love to see/hear some specific cases.

      I’ve been trying to think of some specific examples, Bob. Not much is coming to mind, but I’m going to keep an eye out and if I find any, I’ll report back. It’s tough to locate real-world examples because 6ths are more often used intermittently than everywhere in a song.

    Wow! I play mostly a low G tenor Uke. Experimenting with using the same 6th ditty’s I made up and switching 6ths from the lower strings to the upper strings. Will help in getting around the fretboard.
