Ear Training - Stage 3 Ear Training

After this lesson you'll be able to hear the diatonic intervals, those that make up the major scale, which are the most important!

These intervals are a little more challenging because they are a little further apart, but don't worry, they are not harder - just take a little more practice time to get into your ears!

The test answers are located at the bottom on the page - just keep scrolling down!

Intervals Covered In This Lesson:

Major 6th - My Way

Major 7th - ?? Both The Immigrant Song and Somewhere Over The Rainbow go Root, Octave, Major 7.

Octave - Somewhere Over The Rainbow

See a list of all the song references for all intervals at ET-002 • Song References For Interval Training

Testing Yourself...

As I mention in the video's there are a few ways to test yourself.

1. Use the Justinguitar Interval Ear Trainer!

2. Write a list of intervals and record yourself playing them. Wait a week or a few days (so you forget the order) and then play the recording to yourself and see how you go!

3. Use a Jam Buddy. Play and interval and ask your mate to name it. Tell him if he is right or not. Then he plays one and you have to name it. Easy and fun! And you can compete a bit which often pushes you to be better!











the answers are just down a bit further- you're not cheating now are you????
