Ear Training: Exercise
1 Chord Recognition.
Hello and welcome to ear training,
the game show.
[LAUGH] we're gonna, we're gonna provide
you with a bunch of examples of some of
the things we talked about in ear
training starting with chord recognition,
the what I call tonal color recognition.
And then interval recognition, scale, and
arpeggio recognition, chord progressions,
and even a little tiny bit of,
of linear transcribing.
So we kinda made a little
game out of this too.
We're gonna put a bunch
of examples up there and
if you send in your,
your videos of how you've done on this,
we're gonna give a little award for
people that really excel at this.
It's gonna be the Ear Loeb Award so
you get a little badge.
And it's, it's a really important thing
and you know, I am trying to make it fun,
but I, it, it really is something
you should work on pretty hard.
So when I do these intervals,
you will not see my hands so
you won't know exactly what I'm doing.
And first thing I'm gonna do,
I'm gonna play you know, ten or
fifteen chord relationships.
I'm gonna start with one chord.
Move it to another.
The only thing I'm gonna
say is what key it's in.
And here we go.
We're gonna start in C.
I'm gonna move
it up to the key of E now.
Down to key
of G now.
All the way up to D.
I'm gonna put three chords in this one.
E flat.
finally B flat.
So send in what
you think it is.
I'm anxious to hear it.
