I've been trying that interval ear trainer for a while, and it seemed so much for me, I never got over 60% etc, but with this suggestion I just tried starting with just unision and major and minor thirds, and I jsut got 50 corrects of 50 intervals, so this might work a bit better laugh.gif

Also, this page is great, I downloaded it and have it on my computer.


I downloaded it as well , works great smile.gif

I figured I'd post this in this thread since it's already here and I suppose it's close enough to the original topic.

I've been practicing the ear trainer a lot recently, about 45 minutes per day. I've always known my ear wasn't that good, but I still have trouble hearing the difference between major and minor thirds. I get about 70% when I only have major and minor thirds, wich feels like it's far from good enough.

So what I'm wondering is basically, is this something that takes years to train or does this happen faster? I know it must be individual, but if there's any general answer to this, I'd love to hear it. laugh.gif

Have you tried singing some melodies that have Major or Minor 3rd as starting interval ?

Major 3rd = OH WHEN THE SAINTS, major triad

Minor 3rd = CRUSH OF LOVE (Satriani), minor triad

If you practice every day it will soon become 100% especially if you play it back couple of times, try to sing it and identify it using a song !

Hope that helps smile.gif

I have some songs for reference, and I can mostly tell the difference, but sometimes I'm sure it's a major third and it's a minor or vice versa. That's kind of annoying, I know I have a bad ear, but I hope it's something I can train dry.gif

Thats the thing man with ear training!
When you are really sure 100% then answer has to be correct and in your favor.

What you can also do is play a random note on guitar and try to sing MINOR 3rd from it or Major 3rd wink.gif

Both ascending and descending !

Try that method out as well it should really help smile.gif
