Song References For Interval Ear Training

In this lesson, I give you loads of song reference options for each different interval - both ascending and descending.

Will there ever be a video for these?

Agreed, having a bit of trouble wrapping my head around this one.

This web page has a large list of songs for each interval.

From this page you can select one song for each interval and create a list of just your song choices that you can print out.

Note that grade 1 dealt with p4, p5 and p8 ascending (low note to high note). At some point you also have to learn the same intervals but played from high note to low note (descending).

Hello @megamantto and @JoelVazquez - welcome to the Community.

I don’t see that Justin will make a video here - it would just be talking and Justin would only be directing people to listen to the songs referenced in the written content.

Have you worked through the many Ear Training lessons on the website before arriving at this ‘catch all’ lesson?

then to here …

There is also this tool: Interval Ear Trainer | JustinGuitar.com

Hope that helps.

Did not understand the lesson

Hello @Baqer and welcome to the Community.

The songs listed have either at their outset or as their very famous recurring theme (thinking Jaws theme here) the interval in question.
So …

Happy birthday :
Ha - ppy (root notes) Bir (major 2nd interval)

Oh When The Saints Go Marching In :
Oh (root note) when (major 3rd interval)

Hope that helps.
Cheers :smiley:

Part of the confusion might be coming because when you finish the last lesson of the Introductory module (Learning To Sing (For Ear Training) | JustinGuitar.com) and click on “CONTINUE TO NEXT MODULE” it takes you here rather than to Grade 1. Maybe the reference module should be at the end of all the modules?

may I know what is short ? the U b2, 2,b3, 3… what’s that

Those are just the short hand descriptions of each interval the b is shorthand for flat. So b3 is a flat third or one semitone lower than the third interval.
U is shorthand for unison meaning same note as root.
