Working on Key Note Recognition CD

Q: I’ve been continuing to work on the advanced Ear Training One Note Complete CD for the past couple of months and I’m at the point where I can recognize the sounds of all 12 notes and get a consistent above 80% average. Of course there’s still room for improvement but I’m wondering if I could start work on the Key Note Recognition CD? I have 3 more weeks to go before I finish the Fanatic’s Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing 3 note exercises (3 x 10′ each day, first note transposed up 1 octave) which I’m currently able to do at 55-60bpm. I’ll also be finishing the Single String Studies for Guitar Volume One first page in a couple of weeks (I work on each key up to 40bpm before moving to the next key) and I’m getting much better at transposing and singing the exercise (3 x 10′ each day). I’m also doing about 30′ of the Right Hand Technique for Guitar Volume One each day.

I’ve been working on the forearm movement on the one string exercises (16ths at quarter note=100 bpm) and also the 6 string exercises (16ths at quarter note=80 bpm) plus a bit of the sweep picking exercises.

I’m looking forward to your suggestions and assignments.

A: I would move on to Key Note Recognition but also continue doing the advanced Ear Training One Note Complete CD too.

After you finish the Fanatic’s Guide to Ear Training and Sight Singing assignment I want you to transpose two notes up an octave. Your bpm are getting better that’s a good sign!

Continue with the Single String Studies for Guitar Volume One, sounds like it’s helping.

I want you to start applying your Right Hand Technique for Guitar Volume One to scales. Go to the member’s area and follow the link to Help Files for Scales. Watch the video scale movies and try to learn a new scale every week in all positions. In other words, one key only so C major then C dorian, C phrygian etc.
