EAR TRAINING 001: Matching Tone and Pitch

 NEW  Musicians learn the importance of being able to internalize rhythm early on. The same must also be done with the ability to accurately listen to and recognize musical, tone and pitch. The EAR TRAINING course offered at Creative Guitar will help guitar players drastically improve their sense of note identification, recognition and recall...

Lesson 001 of Ear Training consists of four examples targeting the development of gaining ability to accurately match tone (musical sound) and pitch (the highness or lowness of a sound).

This guitarists ear training course is not designed to be used as a "beginners" note recognition program.

If you are a guitarist who has no background in basic music theory, key signatures, treble-clef staff /note recognition, or foundational rhythmic duration, then it is advised that prior to working on this course, you study the "Introductory" and "Intermediate" guitar player programs prior to working on this course.

Those preliminary courses, (for beginners and Intermediate players), will lay the foundation for understanding how the nuts and bolts of ear training relate musically and how the principles relate to guitar (as well as other instruments).

preliminary courses will also help guitar players better comprehend rhythm duration and key signatures.

(1). Part one, of lesson one Ear Training, involves matching pitch (singing) across the tones of the key signature of "G Major." 

The example scale (discussed and demonstrated in video one), is pitch matched from off of the guitars 6th-string "G" at third fret.

(2). Part two, continues with another example of sound from the Major key signature. A key of "C Major" pitch matching exercise is provided off of the guitars 5th-string, "C" located on the third fret.

(3). Part three, alters the focus of our tone /pitch matching studies toward the minor tonality. A key of "G Minor" pitch matching exercise is provided off of the 6th-string, third fret "G Minor" scale layout.

(4). Part four, works out another minor tonality tone /pitch matching exercise based off of an open 5th-string, key of "A Minor" scale layout.

(5). Solfege Tutorial: The last two pages of the PDF handout for lesson one Ear Training describes the history and the details involved with using the popular pitch matching system that is known world-wide as, "Solfeggio."
