💬 Lesson Description for this Guitar Ear Training Video
When I started getting serious about music and guitar, ear training exercises were the most difficult for me.
I tried all the ear training exercises you can think of, and there's one in particular that completely changed the game for me:
Singing through the modes the of the major scale over a single note drone.
Why does this work better than a lot of other ear training exercises?
Because by singing all the modes of the major scale, we end up hearing and identifying the quality and character of every chromatic note.
In this lesson, I’ll show you how to:
- Map out the modes of the major scale along one string
- Test your singing on individual scale notes
- Sing through all seven modes of the major scale in order
