The next interval we will learn about is called a Minor 6th.
It is a 6th because it spans 6 degrees, or letters, in the scale.
It is Minor because it is a half step smaller than the 6th found in the Major Scale.
A Minor 6th spans 8 half steps.
It is also equal to a Perfect 5th + a Half Step.
By themselves, Minor 6ths tend to have a sad sound.
