Big Spike Hammer, Part 1: The Six Minor Chord
Big Spike Hammer, Part 1: The Six Minor Chord
 

The Osborne Brothers classic “Big Spike Hammer” uses the “six minor chord,” often noted as a vi chord, and Sharon uses it to show you how the vi is related to the I and IV. You’ll learn the arpeggios and double stops of the iv chord in the key of B and a solo to “Big Spike Hammer” in B. Sharon starts by reviewing the L shapes, arpeggios, double stops, and major scale in the key of B and then shows you how to find the vi (G#m) chord arpeggios and double stops in B and how they relate to the I and V chords.
