Just a short and sweet concept to try in this installment; the use of the 6th interval.
This interval sounds great played either melodically (a succession of notes) , or harmonically ( two notes sounded at the same time).

The following displays patterns for this interval in the key of C Major across the fretboard:

I generally approach these with a hybrid picking technique (using pick and fingers together), pick on the lower string and (generally) my middle finger playing the higher one.

I have recorded a backing track for you to experiment with, and a short demo to let you hear the concept.
The progression is :

So why not download the backing track, have a play, record yourself, and post it on here?
Have fun!
