Hi Gab,
thanks for doing this workout, just a little suggestion - please could you record also your voice and say the consecutive number before each interval? E.g. one, two, three ... before playing the next one. That would make it a lot easier when writing down the results. Also I think you could attach the results as a file so everybody can check them instead of you doing the check.

For sure doing the ear training with a guitar is the best, but for some cases when you dont have a guitar handy - there are also some mobile apps, just run search for "ear trainer" on google play.

Fixed now. I used the syntax from "BB code help" but now i see that just the simple link without any tags works.

Ok guys, great to see many GMCers working on this workout. Today I'll share a new assignment which is a bit more difficult.


ASSIGNMENT 2: Intervals II

1. Learning and singing the intervals

This week we will cover all the intervals that form a major scale.

Attached Image

All the intervals below start from A note. If you play all those notes you'll get A major scale.

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_II.mp3 ( 1.75MB ) Number of downloads: 62



- 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?

I find it harder to recognise tones when they are played with gain up than I do when played clean. Any ideas why?
Thanks Gab

Hi Phil, this off course depends on how much distortion you are adding, but as the term says, distortion adds complexity into the audio wave so maybe this can confuse you a bit more than a totally clean signal.

Check out this video to see how a sound is affected when the wave is not totally sine. When adding distortion, the top of the sine is cut, generating extra harmonics that make the sound more complex, as well as the resulting waveform. Adding distortion doesn't mean converting the waveform to square, but this works as an example to see how the sound is affected.



I think that maybe the extra harmonics confuse you a bit, but if you pay attention, the main note is still dominating there, you just have to be more selective.

Thanks Gab,
Very interesting video. I found that up to 4k the square wave sounded slightly sharper to me but at 4k and upwards the sine wave sounded slightly sharper than the square wave. I could hardly hear the 12k, I had to turn up my sound to full to be able to hear it. I was also wondering why you chose to record the samples a little bit dirty, was it to make it a little bit harder?
Cheers
Phil

Well, honestly I didn't do it to make things trickier, but if you find it more difficult, that's great because you need to get used to decipher the root tone on a distorted sound. And things will become more difficult on the next assignment so stay tuned. smile.gif
