EAR TRAINING 003: Minor Scale Intervals

 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 003 of Ear Training Lesson three "Ear Training" focuses on exercises that work on developing sound association and tonal recognition for intervals that exist within the Minor Scale.

If you have no prior experience with basic music theory, basic rhythm, key signatures and how scales work on the guitar, it is strongly advised to first study the Creative Guitar - Introductory Guitar Program, as well as, the Intermediate Guitar 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 three Ear Training develops associations for Minor 2nd and 3rd intervals. Popular songs are used to associate the sound of these minor interval distances.

(2). Part two, adds the association of Minor 6th and 7th intervals. Common, well-known musical pieces are once again used as a way to tie together the relationship of these interval distances.

(3). Part three, works on the recognition of the Minor intervals. Diagrams of the guitar neck and the piano keyboard are used to show the layout of the Minor 2nd and Minor 3rd on each instrument. Use the diagrams to match pitch and recognize the associated songs covered in Part One.

(4). Part four, targets Minor interval recognition of the Minor 6th and 7th through the use of associative melody. Diagrams of the fingerboard and piano are once again utilized for demonstrating these Minor intervals upon both piano and guitar.

(5). Audio Track Training Exercises: Use the MP3 audio tracks (contained within the lesson download), to study the sound of mixed Minor; 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 7th intervals.

The intervals from the table provided on page 5 of your PDF handout are performed upon the guitar and digital piano. Sing and match pitch to each interval as they are performed on the audio tracks.
