Ear Training - Music Intervals
In this lesson we look at what intervals are, how we can use them along with some examples, and how we can use them to improve our song writing techniques.

Example 2 - Cherry Pick - Mountains (Verse) (00:28 - 00:48)
Cherry Pick (Break) (00:48 - 01:13)
Cherry Pick (Pre-Chorus) (01:14 - 01:32)
Example 3 - Vacant Today - Mountains (00:00 - 00:17)
As with everything that you learn, it is important to break whatever it is that you are learning into parts, making it more manageable and less daunting to learn. In addition, try to practice these examples to a metronome, take it slow at fist, and then build up your speed. This way you'll play better and be tighter and be practicing multiple skills all at the same time, very nice.
Best of luck, and I really, really appreciate it if you are taking the time to learn these ear training exercises I have put together. Thank you for your persistence, and as always, happy practicing.
