OK – by now you know the drill. More ear training. We’re going to add three note chords to the usual suspects. Start with the bottom note on the three note chords. See if you can figure out the second note, then move on to the third note. Keep working on it! Play in the […]
A couple of weeks ago, we learned to play 2 notes at a time. This week we will learn 3. First, we are going to play the notes separately. Use all downstrokes, let your pick glide across all 3 strings. Don’t try to pluck each string. just let your pick fall across them. Be sure […]

Here are some ear training exercises using notes from all three strings: G, B and E, the open strings and some power chords. Play in the Key of YOU!
Our 3rd open string, we get the note of G. We also have a G on the 3rd fret of the first string. Why, oh why would we do that to ourselves??? First of all, a piano has seven and a half octaves (more on Octaves later…) which gives us 88 notes. So, we’d run […]
This weeks’ technique is the opposite of last weeks. We are going to hit every new string with an upstroke. Remember that an upstroke starts below the string (closest to the floor) and moves upward (toward the ceiling.) To complete the concept, we’ll run our finger exercises again. On the way up, we’ll hit each […]
