Hope this is the right place to ask. Hi.

Could the 6th intervals be built of any of the notes in the scale? In this example (key of E) we build 6ths from the 3rd (G#) in the scale and the 1st (E) to create a chord tone. In another example could we start on, say, the 2nd (F#) and the 7th D (#) and build 6th of that up the scale? I am guessing Justin has done it this way because of the ease of playing the two notes in Harmonic Intervals. Thanks, just trying to get my head around the theory behind it, it may not be relevant.

Hi Lord, short answer is yes, it's just a 6th of a different key. You just need to count up what is the 6th of the key you are thinking about and there you go. Hope that makes sense :)

It's a 6th in the same Key different chord. It called harmonizing a scale.
Both F# and D# are in the E Major scale and 6 intervals apart.
The difference between a Scale and a Key is a Scales is built from notes.
A Key is built from Chords.
So the answer is yes you can use any two note that are 6 intervals apart.
In the key of E
E F# G# A B C# D#  you can use any of these note 6 intervals apart.
G# and E are 6 interval and so are F# and D#.
Hope that helps.

In the 4th measure, We hit that F# and it's minor 6th - why does this sound so much better than the major 6th here when the whole rest of the tune is major 6ths?
