Not too late for a remix.
I wanna be like Meastro when I grow up.
Having a good sense of pitch and rhythm is genetic. You can also be trained to be offbeat and have no sense of timing. Its crazy science.
I dont have the links handy, but I'll come back and post. Its amazing the way they can track it through the genes.
Word, when you find them links. Drop 'em.
Step yall Aural game up, fuckers.
^ That program is a gift from god.
See that little box labeled "Cadence"?
It plays a Common progression in the key to establish a tonal center, then it plays a random note, and you have to guess. That's kinda based off intervals.. But the way I flipped it, allows me to excercise my potental Absolute pitch.
We'll see in about a month how it works out.
What program is that?..^ I know the other website with the ear training but that programs new to me.
Functional Ear Trainer.
Word...good shit. Bout to hit that up. And i peeped the first track on your myspace..shit is too smoove lol.
Thanks, I appreciate that.
Think I found a method.
I call it the 5th Up 5th Down Method.
Its for recognizing the white notes.
...explain kind sir
this may or may not help me get my bass in key when i sample
The method is based off that program. After you download it, follow this pattern.
Choose C Major Scale first.
Now Pick the following notes and uncheck the rest:
C and G
Do that ten times.
(Make sure "Note Range: One Octave" Is checked)
After you do that, switch the scale to Eb Minor And again
Check C and G, and uncheck every other note
Play it and try to guess the note, do that 20 times. In all you should have done it 30 times. If you get one wrong, don't worry that's how you learn and recognize.
Now after you do that.
Go back to C Major again.
Now choose G and E
And repeat directions above
Then do E to C
And repeat the first directions.
After you do those.
Go back to the C Major Scale
Then choose D and F
Do those ten times.
And instead of going to Eb Minor
Go to Ab Minor
And click D and F and nothing else
Do those 20 times.
GO back to C Major, now click F and A
And repeat above.
Go back to C major again.
Click A to C
The only note that's left out is the B, and when I figure out a lil pattern with the black notes, I'll include B.
My advice to you is to not listen to all of the notes together. Don't try to, just isolate them that way and train your ears to hear what they sound like when you're tonality is fixed to a scale that doesn't contain the notes.
Why do I make you switch Scales?
when you start off with C Major, you train your brain to keep a mental map of the C major scale tonality. So when you play those notes, you hear them in the tonality of C, instead of intervals.
The purpose of switching to a minor scale which doesn't contain the notes, is to excercise your mind in REMEMBER the tonality of C, regardless of what chords are being played.
It's a work in progress though, that's the jist of it.
We'll see though.
And you have to do these excercises everyday. Do them no longer than 20 - 30 minutes.
And throughout the day (or if you work late - when you get home) test yourself to see if you remembered the notes. Don't get mad if you get 'em wrong. That's how you remember, through error.
can't wait to try this
I'ma give you a little technique to use for the musictheory interval trainer.
This will help your ear too:
Go to musictheory.net and do the Interval Ear Trainer (my advice is to download the offline version so you can have with you at all times)
Now start with your majors:
Uncheck everything except for Major 2nd and Major 3rd
2) Do those about 25 - 30 times... or 50 whatever is good. (I don't recommend going past 50 because then your ears will get tired)
After that's done. Only uncheck Major 3rd and check Perfect 4.t.h
Repeat the BOLD
Then you unheck the fourth and go to perfect 5th
Repeat the bold.
You do the same until you get to
When you get there, you should uncheck major 2nd and move to major3rd because major 7tha nd 2nd can confuse you at times.
After you do that, repeat the bold.
(do not check them all to try. the key is to try to remember them by relatiion to another).
Again thsi is something you should do everyday.
And certain days, change the direction, make the intervals go down, then up or randomize it.
And make sure you choose the option that plays both notes, then plays them together.
This'll help your relative pitch.
After you get used to hearing them, then you put all the majors together to see if you can tell them apart.
can you PLEASE explain the singing on the song Get It On on your myspace if pitch presents no problem to you?
nevermind i read the blogs n all that n listened n shit good luck man!!
