Ear Training Course

 

Ear Training 007

 

April 14, 2019:
Extended Chords (9, 11, 13)

 

PART ONE: Part one, of lesson seven Ear Training introduces the sounds of Major and Minor 9 chords. These chords are created by adding a Major 2nd interval (9th) an octave above the tones of a Major or Minor 7 chord. The lesson contains exercises involving pitch matching of these 9th chord types.

 


membersPART 2, 3, 4, 5: (available in the members area)

(2). Part two, focuses on the 13th extension added on top of Major and Minor 7th chords. The drills in part two will add a Major 6th interval (13th) an octave above the tones of the Major and Minor 7th chord types.

 

(3). Part three studies the sound of Dominant chord quality with pitch matching exercises devoted to the Dominant 9 and 13. The Dominant 9 chords are constructed by adding a Major 2nd (9th) an octave above the tones of a Dominant 7th chord. The Dominant 13 is constructed by adding the Major 6th (13th) an octave above the tones of a Dominant 7th.

 

(4). Part four, works through the unique sound of the "Dominant 11 (sus2)," along with the "Minor 11."

 

NOTE: The 11th chord extension does not function on "Major" or "Dominant" chord types due to the clash that exists between the Major 3rd and the Perfect 4th (11) of this quality. The, "Dominant 11 (sus2)" chord consists of a; Root, 9th, 11th and b7 chord structure.

 

The "Minor 11" chord includes the tones of a "Minor 7" chord with the addition of a Perfect 4th (11th) up an octave.

 

(5). Audio Track Training Exercises: Use the MP3 audio tracks (contained within the lesson download), to study the sound of each "Extended" chord.

 

These chords on the table (provided on page 5 of your PDF handout), are performed upon both the guitar and on the digital piano. Sing and match pitch to each arpeggiated interval as they are performed on the audio tracks.

 

Both video lessons, the PDF handout and MP3 jamtrack are available in the paid members area of CreativeGuitarStudio.com
