At last, the long awaited 4x5x6 tutorial/demonstration! Tom Z's epic and incredible shapeshifting "brick" cuboid. This first part gives us some perspective on the approach to the puzzle, and we begin the solve by placing all our centers and edges. The strategy is exactly the same as a 4x4x5. The solve strategy is:
1. Solve the centers and edges like a 4x4x5
2. Get it back to the cuboid form exactly like a 3x3x5
3. Solve the remaining pieces in the cuboid form using parity algorithms like the 3x4x5

Just for reference: Top to bottom corner swap: 2R U 2R Ui 2R
Adjacent corner swap: 2R U 2R Ui 2R (Ui D) 2R Ui 2R U 2R
Adjacent edge swap: 2R U 2R U 2R 2U 2R 2U 2R U 2R Ui 2R (This will create parity)
Opposite edge swap: 2R 2U 2R 2U 2R 2U (This will create parity)
Parity algorithms for the even layer: 2Uu 2R 2F 2Uu 2U 2F 2R 2Uu
Parity algorithm for the odd layer: 2Uu 2R 2F 2Uu 2F 2R 2Uu 2F, and then look for the parity created at the layer at right angles and solve for the even layer.
