If you want to be a great improviser, you must know how to play simple melodies by ear. You've got to, man dudes. Before you start asking about scales and modes, ask yourself if you can EVEN MELODY!
Listen hard and tap into your deep musicianship, just like Rosana Eckert (from University of North Texas) and I did in this video as you watch us push each other in these intense ear training challenges. Intervals, chord colors, harmonies, jazz improvisations, and music theory for DAYS. Watch the extended cut on Nebula (and without ads ) here: https://nebula.tv/aimeenolte
Lets discuss chords, their flavors, and their inversions. Let's talk about how to hear the difference between them and then quiz you to check your progress. Answers below!
Have you ever wondered if you have a talent for music? Chances are, you do! In this video, I give you a small test to see if you have what it takes to learn to play by ear. We also learn a C major and G7 chord. Let me know how you do in the comments! More videos soon!
Adam from Australia says he can't play melodies by ear because he can't sing in tune. Watch as we work through his difficulties, and prove him wrong! This video is a follow-up to "Bruh, Do You EVEN Melody?" If you'd like to donate to support my upcoming recording, please do so here: https://paypal.me/aimn

In order to REALLY get to know a tune (a song), you don't only have to play it in all of the keys, but you can also THINK it in all of the keys. This is next level stuff, and I hope you have fun taking this step. If you'd like to donate to my channel, please do so here: https://paypal.me/aimn
