Now, we come to
the sixth position.
Because we've been going up
through the position in fifths.
So, if you go up in fifths,
just to retrace our steps.
I'll just do this on the piano.
C [SOUND] is first position.
G [SOUND] is second.
D is third.
[SOUND] A is fourth.
[SOUND] E is fifth.
We just go in a straight line here,
and then B [SOUND] is sixth position.
So, the way you could think of it on the
harmonica is, B is a half step below C.
Here's C, [SOUND] here's B,
[SOUND] there's no black key between them.
So, the easiest way to find B is,
you have to go to
the second C on the harmonica,
which is the fourth hole.
The Cs are one, four, seven, and ten.
that's four of them.
So, the second one,
[SOUND] B is a half step below that.
So, if we start on B, [SOUND] and
play up all the notes in the scale B,C,
D, E, F, G, A.
We get this kind of funny scale that
is not very useful for very many things,
[LAUGH] it's called the Locrian mode.
And it has a flatted second,
[SOUND] a minor third,
[SOUND] a fourth, a flatted fifth,
[SOUND] a flatted sixth,
[SOUND] and minor flatted seventh.
[SOUND] Everything's pretty flatted.
You use it first to go along with
some jazz chords much later on,
but for our purposes here,
it is really not very useful, and
I'm not going to really
play anything in it,
I just wanted to show you what
it was the B Locrian mode.
