Ear training

Again didn’t manage to get to the level with 7 intervals… Still struggling with Major 2nd, Minor 3rd and Major 3rd intervals – they sound pretty much the same for me. It’s easier when the played notes are close but in other situations I just can’t differ them yet.

Songs

Today I figured out the opening for Gravity Falls. Here it is.

On the random riffs front there’s not so much today, I basically just repeated something I played before.

Gravity Falls Opening
Happy Birthday
Король и Шут – Лесник
The Phantom of the Opera
Marilyn Manson – Sweet Dreams
Ozzy Osbourne – Crazy Train [Intro]

Summary

I’m eager to end this week and start some new routines. Also the chord construction module is so much fun. It’s so simple yet enjoyable. I understood that one can play chords everywhere on the fretboard just by playing the correct notes right away, but now I know everything about it – inversions, positioning and so on. Maybe tomorrow I’ll start practicing something from that module routines.
