Eric Johnson lick and the hexatonic scale
One thing I never hear people
talk about is hexatonic scales.
Usually we either deal with
pentatonics (5 notes), or diatonics
(7 notes), but hexatonics fall
right in the middle.
You can think of it as either a diatonic
minus 1 note, or a pentatonic with
1 extra note.
This particular hextaonic scale
that I’m showing here (minor
pentatonic plus the major 2nd)
has a cool sound and you can
create some “Eric Johnson”
CHeck it out.
