GUITAR THEORY AND EAR TRAINING
Learn To Identify Intervals
on the musical staff.
This is so amazing. Click on the gear icon in the upper right. You can choose:
- The clef. For us guitar players the treble clef is the choice. But you can also work in bass clef, the grand staff, alto clef, tenor clef, soprano clef, and even mezzo-soprano and baritone clef. Amaze your friends at parties!
- Choose the note range. If you are a beginner, you can focus on the intervals that fall within the first four frets. Or, go for it, and specify the entire range of the guitar.
- If you want to raise the bar even more, choose how many key signatures you want the game to fire at you. Choose from 0 to 7 sharps and/or flats.
- If you want to go easy on yourself, you can choose only certain intervals to be tested on.
- Turn on Require Quality to kick it up a notch.
- Turn on Compound Mode and try not to lose all hope.
- Choose the level of difficulty from Level 1—no accidentals, to Level 5—"Accidentals of Doom". Now you will really start sweating and your heartrate will skyrocket.
CAUTION: If you choose the full note range, all 15 key signatures, all 25 interval qualities to be tested on, Require Quality on, Compound Mode on, and Level 5—Accidentals of Doom, you are on your own.
