JUSTIN Method Training Exercises

The Intermediate Method

Well it's that time again to Just Use Sound To Improve Now...

For the chord transcriptions this time we're going to be looking at E and A Shape Major chords. Just the Majors.


The real deal is audio!!

OK, I have explained things in the video - but now it's time to put your ears to work!!

MP3 files of these audio clips are included on the DVD Set!

3A - E and A Shape Major Barre Progressions
In these exercises I will be only using E and A Shape Major chords. We're going to be moving the root note around a bit more so I want you to get used to that and we're also going to be changing chords more often sometimes so we may have two chords in a barre - which makes the pausing of the track in the right place even more important! Good luck.

3B - A Minor Pentatonic Solo
We're back with the A Minor Pentatonic Scale again. Same notes as we used in Foundation 1, what we have now is just a little more rhythmic interest, making it a bit more real! :) Make sure you pause well and listen closely to the notes and the rhythm. Write the rhythm above the notes (like you did for the rhythmic dictation exercises in Foundation 2!). If you struggle with the rhythmic element - print the answer page out - cover up the notes and just copy the rhythms onto your worksheet to help you for the first one!

3C - Rhythmic Dictation Exercises (Q / E and rests)
In this exercise we are only using Quarter notes (Crotchets) and Eighth notes (Quavers) but also adding in rests of the same values. The main difference from last time is that I will be making the rhythms more difficult and making them more syncopated, meaning there will be more notes off the beat (more rests on the beat!). If you really don't get how to write these down then check out the Rhythm lesson by guest writer Justin Scott (of
