Hello guys! This is a ear training workout that I'll start specially for those students that have problems connecting mind, ear, voice and guitar. I consider this essential for every guitarist that want to take music seriously since it's the only way to be able to learn songs that you like and to compose your own music.

This workout is open for everybody, no matter what's your current level. There is some stuff that you will do alone, and there are some exercises that you will have to respond and share with me.

As I want that everybody takes the time necessary to work on each assignment, please ask all the questions that you need, share your experience, and try to avoid sharing results in your posts, please use another thread or just a TXT file to avoid spoilers for other students.




ASSIGNMENT 1: Intervals I


- An interval is the distance between two notes. If you are more curious about them: You can learn a lot HERE. But it's not necessary for this workout.

1. Learning and singing the intervals

We will start learning 3 different intervals: Major 3rd, Perfect 5th and Octave.

All the intervals below start from A note. The second 3 ones are the same intervals but starting from a higher octave.

What do to during this week?
- Learn and play on guitar each of those shapes.
- Play the first note, sing it, play the second note and sing it.
- Play both notes and then sing the interval.
- Try to remember the sound of each interval to be able to sing it when you are not with your guitar in hand. Go for a walk and keep on singing them, then when you get back, check if you were doing it correctly.

2. Exercise

- Download the following audio in which I played the intervals in different orders. Right down the order of intervals played. Use your guitar to help you but also sing along with the intervals. You can off course pause the track and check the examples as many times as you need before you write the name of the interval played. Once you are sure, share the results on your Gab's Army thread and notify me here.

Attached File  Assignment_1___Exercise.mp3 ( 3.4MB ) Number of downloads: 235


- Once you did this exercise, as a friend to play intervals to recognize them or record a long track playing intervals in different orders and then try to recognize each one.
- Also, while listening to solos or riffs that you like, try to recognize when this intervals are used. Do this all the time, when you listen music on radio, tv, films, on the streets.

Who is in?


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Frequently asked questions:

- I am beginner at guitar, can I join? YES!
- I am advanced with guitar but my ear is not strong, can I join? YES!
- Is it free? YES! but I open to receive some of your favorite sweets or biscuits. laugh.gif
- Do I need a lot of available time? NO! The tasks are not very big so you can keep your current life and routine and dedicate 10 minutes every day do this.
- Is ear training important? Your ear is the one that will define everything related your playing and composing skills. He will be the only real and honest judge, but obviously if it's well trained, if not, he will be your worst enemy!

I've just had a go and I was doing ok until going above the second octave, I sounded like a squealing cat. I used my Korg TM-50 to check my vocal notes, I didn't use it to get there though, only to look when I thought I had it right.

I enjoyed it though, too much really because it took all of my practice time away. No discipline rolleyes.gif

Thanks Gab

hehehe well done Phil! I'm not expecting that you become singers with this but don't be shy and sing! It will help a lot during this workout.
