The Hexatonic Scale is a scale with six notes per octave. Some examples of this scale are the whole Tone scale, Augmented Scale, Prometheus Scale and the Blues Scale. These types of scales are prominent in the Jazz genre of music.
MacLennan demonstrates the Hexatonic lick in the 7th position based off of a GM7 chord as follows; 7th fret of the 2nd string with first finger to the 8th fret with 2nd finger and then back to the 7th fret. Next 9th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger to the 7th fret with first finger and then he repeats that same sequence on the 4th string. Next is the 10th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger to the 9th fret of the 4th string, which he slides into from below with first finger to the 10th fret of the 6th string with 3rd finger and finally ends on the 7th fret of the 5th string with first finger.
