Scene 1

00:00.000 --> 00:02.797
Hey everyone this is Chris Liepe.

00:02.797 --> 00:04.090

00:04.090 --> 00:12.327
Here with another beginner lesson series lesson and today we are going to be doing a follow up on the intervals lesson

00:12.327 --> 00:15.178
that was done earlier in this series.

00:15.178 --> 00:21.922
This is going to be an intervals quiz and this is going to be a little bit of a different lesson than you've probably experienced in the past.

00:21.922 --> 00:24.910
Basically I am going to play a bunch of intervals.

00:24.910 --> 00:27.236
I'm not going to tell you what they are.

00:27.236 --> 00:34.580
If you'll refer to the supplemental content really quick you will notice that there are two different sheets.

00:34.580 --> 00:37.883
One sheet you do not want to look at until we are all done.

00:37.883 --> 00:43.337
The other sheet though is something that if you can you want to print out,

00:43.337 --> 00:52.458
grab your guitar and write down the names of the intervals you think I am playing as I'm going through them and as you're figuring them out.

00:52.458 --> 00:57.429
I'm going to try to leave some space in between each interval so if you have to grab your guitar you can.

00:57.429 --> 01:05.547
If you don't have to, if you've been able to train your ear enough here over the however long you've been playing

01:05.547 --> 01:11.511
maybe you can do it without your guitar but there will be enough time for you to sit down and try to figure these out.

01:11.511 --> 01:18.293
Look over the supplemental materials real quick and print out the first page.

01:18.293 --> 01:22.888
We will get started here in just a second.

Scene 2

00:00.000 --> 00:07.452
In this first section I am going to be playing intervals all based off of the root G.

00:07.452 --> 00:09.445
So they are all going to have the same root.

00:09.445 --> 00:13.625
If you refer to the last interval lesson that we did in this series

00:13.625 --> 00:20.839
you will notice that when I went over the harmonic intervals section those were all root G as well.

00:20.839 --> 00:27.312
So if you haven't watched that lesson or if you need a refresher go back and watch that section on harmonic intervals

00:27.312 --> 00:30.476
and get familiar with how some of these sound.

00:30.476 --> 00:44.030
We're going to be playing here in this position so all of the intervals you hear and going to be coming from here.

00:44.030 --> 00:48.166
Let's start with the quiz.

00:48.166 --> 01:14.299
That was number one.
Here's number two.

01:14.299 --> 01:30.699
Once more.

01:30.699 --> 01:43.007
So I am playing them melodically first, one note at a time and then I'm playing them harmonically, together.

01:43.007 --> 01:47.441
Here is number three.

01:47.441 --> 02:09.832
Number four.

02:09.832 --> 02:28.925
Number five.

02:28.925 --> 02:45.770
Number six.

02:45.770 --> 03:04.766
The last one in this section.
Number seven.

03:04.766 --> 03:26.960
Now you've noticed that you can't see my hand very well it's blurred out so you can't cheat.

03:26.960 --> 03:29.577
On to the next section.

Scene 3

00:00.000 --> 00:13.307
In this next section of the quiz we are going to be dealing with intervals still from root G but they are not going to be diatonic to the G major scale.

00:13.307 --> 00:20.998
In other words we're going to be dealing with our minor thirds, minor seconds, minor sevenths, minor whatever, diminished fifths

00:20.998 --> 00:31.235
and those were also covered in the last lesson and have been covered in a variety of lessons here on JamPlay dealing with intervals.

00:31.235 --> 00:42.831
Again if this is hard for you I encourage you to continue watching the lesson but maybe watch some other lessons on JamPlay

00:42.831 --> 00:49.990
and start practicing this aspect of ear training and intervals and then come back and take the quiz again if you find this to be really difficult.

00:49.990 --> 00:54.135
Let's move to the second section of the quiz here.

00:54.135 --> 00:57.621
Non diatonic intervals from root G.

00:57.621 --> 01:16.948
Once more this is number one.

01:16.948 --> 01:26.871
Number two.

01:26.871 --> 01:39.374
Once more.

01:39.374 --> 01:59.572
Number three.

01:59.572 --> 02:16.437
Number four.

02:16.437 --> 02:38.818
I am going to cycle through the intervals again in this section so you can hear them once more.

02:38.818 --> 02:40.910
A little funkier.

02:40.910 --> 02:42.907
Number one.

02:42.907 --> 02:50.606
Number two.

02:50.606 --> 02:59.833
Number three.

02:59.833 --> 03:09.842
Number four.

03:09.842 --> 03:22.019
Ok. Hopefully you are tracking ok.

03:22.019 --> 03:29.322
In the next section we're going to get away from root G based intervals and we're going to go all over the neck.

03:29.322 --> 03:35.366
Using the same intervals but from different roots.

03:35.366 --> 03:42.186
This get a little bit trickier when it comes to hearing the distance between the notes.

03:42.186 --> 03:49.774
It's in this section where I want to remind you guys to use the songs.

03:49.774 --> 04:02.450
Some of the songs we worked on in the last lesson to sing or to play or to memorize those melodies so that if you can reference one of those songs

04:02.450 --> 04:07.241
and attach one of these intervals that you're hearing to the songs it'll be easier to figure out the intervals.

04:07.241 --> 04:10.773
Let's just do a quick review of some of these songs.

04:10.773 --> 04:17.850
An interval of a major second you can use the song "Yankee Doodle."

04:17.850 --> 04:24.836
"Yankee doodle went to town" so the first two notes is the distance of a major second.

04:24.836 --> 04:33.842
Notes two and three because you play note one twice.

04:33.842 --> 04:37.727
A major third "Oh when the saints."

04:37.727 --> 04:44.241
"Oh when the saints, oh when the saints, oh when."

04:44.241 --> 04:46.382
That's the distance of a major third.

04:46.382 --> 04:50.127
Fourth "Amazing Grace."

04:50.127 --> 04:55.004
"Amazing grace how sweet the sound."

04:55.004 --> 04:58.493
So sing that in your head when you are trying to figure out a fourth.

04:58.493 --> 05:00.117
Or play it or whatever works.

05:00.117 --> 05:08.656
A fifth. Standard old monks chants are often based on fifths as we discussed last time.

05:08.656 --> 05:19.825
Also the "Top Gun" anthem is a fifth if you know that melody line.

05:19.825 --> 05:24.147
A sixth is going to be "My bonnie lies over the ocean."

05:24.147 --> 05:32.883
"My bonnie lies over the ocean, my bonnie lies over the sea."

05:32.883 --> 05:35.928
A seventh.

05:35.928 --> 05:37.773

05:37.773 --> 05:39.357
The end of the "Superman" theme.

05:39.357 --> 05:47.709
Finally the octave.

05:47.709 --> 05:52.081
"Somewhere over the rainbow."

05:52.081 --> 05:56.482
"Somewhere over the rainbow."

05:56.482 --> 06:01.896
So a quick review for you before we get to the last section of the quiz.

Scene 4

00:00.000 --> 00:02.911
Here is the last section.

00:02.911 --> 00:06.677
A variety of intervals based off of different roots.

00:06.677 --> 00:13.156
Anything is fair game here a major, minor, augmented, diminished, intervals all of those that we've talked about so far.

00:13.156 --> 00:18.036
So here we go.
Number one.

00:18.036 --> 00:36.626
Once more.

00:36.626 --> 00:47.882
Number two.

00:47.882 --> 01:04.869
Once more.

01:04.869 --> 01:15.282
Number three.

01:15.282 --> 01:44.076
Number four.

01:44.076 --> 02:16.727
Number five.

02:16.727 --> 02:46.750
Number six.

02:46.750 --> 03:07.114
Once more.

03:07.114 --> 03:22.685
The last one.
Number seven.

03:22.685 --> 03:52.101
That wraps up the interval quiz.

03:52.101 --> 04:00.565
Hopefully your ear is further trained and is in the process of being further developed as you're doing things like this

04:00.565 --> 04:02.336
and working through some of these lessons.

04:02.336 --> 04:08.679
Now the second piece of paper that you should have printed out that I told you not to look at

04:08.679 --> 04:12.917
in fact you probably didn't even want to have it printed out before the end of this.

04:12.917 --> 04:22.443
Once you've written down all of your intervals, watched the video and feel pretty confident about your answers you can check your answers with that

04:22.443 --> 04:28.323
second piece of paper that you have printed out available in the supplemental content as a PDF.

04:28.323 --> 04:35.420
Hopefully you enjoyed this and we will see you back for more lessons.

First I'd ever heard certain songs attributed to various intervals...nice way for people with little music theory background to actually hear intervals in action. Well done!

BradleyABradleyA replied

Completely lost on this quiz. Didn't get any of the intervals. This is not good. :(

how do i find the non diatonic interval videos

Fade2black16Fade2black16 replied

proud of my self. only missed two on section 3 on the 1st try.

shlangshlang replied

why is it a perfect 4th or diminished and not major or minor?

JustOldBobJustOldBob replied

Chris,I was doing pretty good up until this lesson,Im totally lost with what im supposed to learn here.So I cheated and looked at the answers and I still dont know ,

dimitrydimitry replied

BradleyABradleyA replied

Excellent resource tool, dimitry. Thank you.

harry9000harry9000 replied

Am I wrong or can an Augmented 5th be considered a minor 6th, and an Aug 4th a diminished 5th? If so, I tonally ruled on this quiz.

joseejosee replied

I really enjoy this quiz, very formative

ratfaceratface replied

Hey chris i got one more problem. One the vertical g major scale i saw that you called first note two different names. You called it a major second in lesson 8 and you were counting the first three notes like 1,2,3. So is there a major 1st mabey? Sorry for asking so many questions. Thanks

ratfaceratface replied

Am i missing something? Have we learned about non diatonic intervals and where is that covered. thanks. great lesson bye the way

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied

we have not covered 'non-diatonic' intervals in this section. this quiz includes only diatonic intervals, in other words, only intervals that appear in the Major Scale

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied

let me correct myself... this quiz covers major and minor intervals. the word "diatonic" refers to notes that belong in a particular scale or key. All the intervals in this quiz are "diatonic" to either a major or minor scale. A flat 5 for flat 2 would be considered non diatonic intervals and these are not covered in this quiz. Sorry for the confusion

marounazarmdmarounazarmd replied

did perfect on 1 and 2. got one wrong in the 3rd section. did not use the guitar. Memorizing songs is awesome! I never thought I could recognize intervals. Of course I am still pretty slow at it as this is my first time, and I had to stop the recording many times to really imagine the sounds and match them with songs in my head. Any song ideas for diminished 5th and minor 6th?

jessman25jessman25 replied

Very tough. With Guitar in hand I could work it out but 3rd - 4th and 5th sound very close to me and 5th 6th and 7th sound similar. 2nd and Octave is slightly faster to pick out. Minors are even tougher. Oh - this is my 2nd time through! We'll see again in a few months.

hakea333hakea333 replied

As Coffeenut said - a reality check here too! Really glad we were allowed to do it with the guitar in hand, as I would have certainly bombed without it. Did fine on 1 and 2, but only got section 3 correct because I doggedly looped each question until I could match the notes on the guitar, and then check the interval. A hollow victory, for sure. At least I managed to match Chris's notes by ear... any points for that? Not really? Ah well, I'll have to try a bit of ear training and come back in a couple of weeks and see how I score without using the guitar. It could be bloody.... Thanks for a fun quiz Chris.

greyskiesgreyskies replied

Did great on section 1 and 2, but the 3rd kicked my butt. I'll be back section 3, watch your back!!!! Thanks for the reality check

Chris Liepe

About Chris Liepe View Full Biography Chris Liepe was born on September 17th, 1981 in Portland OR. His first instrument was piano which he pursued until discovering his love for the electric guitar in high school. He became fans of such groups as Soundgarden, Collective Soul and U2 inspiring him to start singing, songwriting and helping others in their musical endeavors with teaching, co-writing and album production.

Having moved to Colorado with his family, he began gigging, recording and teaching in a number of music stores as well as out of his apartment until deciding to pursue music full time. He moved to Denver, CO to complete a Bachelors in Music Technology and was then hired on by Sweetwater Productions, a division of Sweetwater Sound and one of the largest, most successful recording studios in the Midwest.

Chris spent nearly 4 years at Sweetwater as a producer, recording engineer, studio musician and writer. During this time he had the privilege of working with many artists including Augustana, Landon Pigg, Jars of Clay, and Mercy Me. He also wrote for and played on numerous independent albums and hundreds of radio/TV commercials.

Wanting to get back to his favorite State in the world (Colorado) and feeling the urge to 'go freelance', Chris moved to Greeley, CO and opened his own recording and teaching studio. He continues to write and produce music for artists and agencies and is happy to be among the proud instructors.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
