Hi Phil! The thread is now moved! It's on the important topics part of the Practice Room sub forum. smile.gif

This is to officially invite every GMCer to start following this workout.


Hello Gab,

It's still in the "Forum topics" section, not pinned to the important topics wink.gif

Can you try to explain something please? My Korg TM-50 is a little bit weird. When I'm checking my voice for the Major 6th (F#) my tuner (I am using the built in mic) jumps rapidly between F# and B. It also does it with the guitar signal from the speakers but not if I plug the guitar in.

Any ideas?

Cheers

Phil

Hi Phil, I mean that it's now at important topics when you enter to PRACTICE ROOM sub forum:

About your issue with the tuner, I'm not sure about the reason but maybe there is some kind of fluctuation related to the fact that the sound that reaches the mic is not totally clean / clear. The specific intervals confused could be related to some acoustic / physics concepts related to harmonics.

ASSIGNMENT 3: Moving intervals

Hello guys! welcome to the assignment 3 of this workout. In the previous works, you've learnt to play different intervals starting from note A. This "shapes" are movable so you can get the 3 major, or perfect 5th of every note just by keeping the same shape.

For example, this is a major third starting first from A, then from D and finally from F:

2. Exercise

This week's exercise is based on the "movable" concept so you will have to recognize intervals starting from different roots. This makes the recognition more difficult because you lose the previous root reference with each new interval. The exercise requires that you only write the interval heard, not the specific notes.

As this workout is now open for everybody at the Forum, you can share your results here but uploading a txt file to avoid spoilers for other students, ok?

Thanks Phil and all the other GMCers that have already shared the results with me. You still have a few days to practice on this one before I share the next assignment.

Hi guys,
Gab asked me to share my way of recognizing the basic intervals.
I just associated each interval with a song which starts with that interval. So when I hear an interval, I guess which one it is and I try to sing the first two notes of the song associated with that interval.

Just for example this child song starts with Major 3rd

so when I hear an interval and I think it is a major 3rd, I sing the start of that song which confirms it or not.

ASSIGNMENT 4: Moving intervals Pt. II

Hello guys! welcome to the new assignment for this week. If you've done the previous one you surely noted that we only used 3rd, 5th and octave to make things easier. Now we go one step forward! You have to be able to recognize all intervals that we've learnt starting from different roots.

Exercise

This week's exercise is again based on the "movable" concept so you will have to recognize intervals starting from different roots. This makes the recognition more difficult because you lose the previous root reference with each new interval. The exercise requires that you only write the interval heard, not the specific notes.

Thanks Petra,

That's great. My problem is that I don't know, at the moment, if I'm singing the correct interval without checking on a tuner. I guess I have a long way to go before my mind and ears are working together.

Cheers

Phil

However, I wonder, when singing a very known song, for example "happy birthday", do you notice if you sing it on pitch or not?

To be honest Gab, I don't think I do notice if I sing along with recorded version but, as usual don't get time to adjust pitch. It's as though my brain doesn't remember the tune correctly. I guess this comes with time if you aren't born with a good ear. I know this ear training is working though. I was in a bar today and a bloke's phone kept on getting messages, I think I got the intervals that were in the notification but had nothing to check with.
One day, along with this training course which is brilliant, I will be able to work out simple melodies. I'm hoping this course will eventually go down the road of the student having to work out simple 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 note melodies and beyond.

Thanks for this Gab, I really appreciate your help and I'm sure I speak on behalf of all GMCers who are using this course.

Phil

Hi Phil! Thanks for your words. I'm glad that you find this course helpful. There are many students following it, sending me results via PM and also using the mentoring threads. Everybody is getting correct answers so it seems that GMCer's ears are being polished. smile.gif

I'm hoping the day will come when I recognise the interval completely without having to use my guitar and a diagram to work it out cool.gif

Thanks Gab,
I am starting to recognise and play the third and know it's a third, I can hear and play the fifth sometimes but I don't know it's a fifth until i check the diagram.

Hope this makes sense rolleyes.gif

Cheers

Phil

Ok guys, it's great to receive many answers from students at my personal board and also via PM. Remember that everybody can join, and if you arrived here late, there is no problem, start with the first assignment and write me when it's ready. You can join at any time and take your own time to master the assignments.

A new assignment will be published soon, stay tuned. wink.gif
