Playing the scale one after another can get boring fast. The sixth interval is going six notes of the scale up from where you are (count the one your starting on as 1!). Intervals are a great way to get used to seeing and hearing the scale better. Snippets of this exercise can build solo ideas to. From Mozart to Randy Rhoads, these exercises are great to get used to.
