Hi, fellow music lover! Congratulations on starting your music-making journey.
Ear training is one of the most rewarding skills you can develop, and it’s one that you can work on every day. Which makes total sense: music is an aural experience, after all. Ear training helps you turn the music you hear into music you make on your guitar. This works for your own musical ideas, too: when you dream up a great riff or chord progression, you naturally want to sit down and play it right away. Ear training helps you do just that.
This lesson is broken into several chapters, each of them focusing on two to four related chords or scales. There are plenty of examples for each chord and scale, so you can work straight through the lesson or hop around as much as you like.
The last chapter is a sort of final exam. It brings together all the chords or scales we’ve covered and mixes them up for an extra challenge. Give it a go every once in a while to measure your progress.
Best of all, every concept we discuss here is played on a real guitar by a real guitarist.
Oh, and before I forget, the most important tip of all: have fun!
