So here are the results for my second day of ear training. Right now I’m practicing melodic intervals. It’s when two notes are played one after the other and I have to guess how many notes apart they are. My goal is to hit 90% accuracy before moving on to focus on Harmonic interval. Guessing the distance between two simultaneous notes.
Yesterday’s High score was 65%. Today’s High Score was 74%
Here’s my score from when I first woke up, I noticed I was still rough on the sixths so I did some training on that. The final picture is my final score of 74%. After doing the training on sixths I began mistaking fifths for minor sixths and octaves for major sixths >.> Oh well hopefully after some rest my ears will be able to tell the difference again.

Oh these are hard.
My score usually improves from 20% to 70% after a couple hours of doing it in a row.
They are difficult especially when they play a string of the same intervals and makes you second guess. >.<
Do you know the tune to “My Bonnie”? The first two notes of the melody are a major sixth. That was the trick my piano teacher taught me.
I don’t know that tune but there was a motif in Promenade by Modest Mussorsky (spelling?) was a major sixth and I use Theme from love story by francis lai for my minor sixth.
