Minor 6ths Reading

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.
