hey guys, start to take a course from a guy name David Lucas Burge, on relative pitch

and my first homework from lesson one is to hear and sing 5th fifths.

but i don't say C C#/Db D goes on i say it Dó Dó sustenido/Ré bemol Ré....just wonder if that matters?
the other question is related to the guitar, i only have a guitar at home to hear and train the intervals, and well it ain't perfect tuned to the 440, so i was wondering if that won't make me for example "sing/internalize" a not so tuned fifth?

Hi man! It's great that you decided to train your ear because it's the most important tool for a musician!
Calling the notes C D E F G A B or Do Re Mi Fa Sol La Si, is the same. You are talking of the same thing... here in Argentina we use "Do - Re - Mi and so.. in USA musicians use C D E F...
If you are using your guitar to train your ear is VERY important to tune it in 440. Use a tuner for this... if you can't tune it you could use the guitar pro software or something similar to practice.

David Lucas Burge's method is very good! But as Gabriel said, you must take care and tune the guitar in 440, otherwise you will not train your ears in a good way at all!

I used Earmaster Pro for a while, it's very good and recommend it. It helped me a lot with upgrading my singing of backing vocals as well, always useful and important skill.

An easy way to do it is to remember a memorable sone or tune that starts with the interval you are after. So a 5th interval, good example is the first two notes of the STAR WARS theme song....DO Do....and so on
