Overview
Guitar Ear Training is a relative pitch ear training game that is designed to help you master how to hear, recognize and play melodies, intervals, triads, and chords on your guitar. Each game was designed to work on a specific ear training skill in musical contexts that you will be able to apply directly to the music you are learning or creating.

The way you play Guitar Ear Training is via your real guitar. Guitar Ear Training will play musical questions in the form of notes, melodies, and chord progression. You will answer the questions using your real guitar. Your device will listen to what you play and provide feedback. Each answer to the game's questions will appear on the screen as text and notes diagrams on the fretboard. You will see the note diagrams in green if you answer correctly and in red if you answer incorrectly. Each game has multiple levels. Level 1 of each game only has two possible answers. Each additional level increases difficulty by adds a new possible answer to the game. As you advanced through the levels, you will be amazed at how quickly you will be able to apply the skills learned in this app to the music you are learning or creating.

Melodies and Intervals
The goal of these games is to learn to hear the notes of the major scale. The first 6 levels will sound in one octave. Higher Levels will play notes in other octaves. The goal is to recognize and play the interval no matter the octave. Other Scales are available: Ionian (Major), Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian (Minor), Melodic Minor, Harmonic Minor, and Chromatic. The interval and melody games will solidify your knowledge of the intervals. To complete a level and automatically advance, you need to get 98% of the answers correct. As you master the levels of the interval games, it is recommended to move on to the 3 Note and 5 Note Melody games.

Melodic Interval Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by one note. Play back the note when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window.

Harmonic Interval Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by two notes played at the same time. The root note of the key, and a 2nd note. Play back just the 2nd note when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window.

Melody 3 Note Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by three notes. Play the first note's answer when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window. Wait for the answer to appear, then play the second note's answer when "Play" appears again, etc.

Melody 5 Note Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by five notes. Play the first note's answer when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window. Wait for the answer to appear, then play the second note's answer when "Play" appears again, etc.

Settings

Beginner / Advanced Mode
Beginner Mode will show the answer as the questions are played. Advanced Mode will only show the notes on fretboard and text after you have played your answer - you must rely solely on your ears.

Mic Normal / Mic Sensitive
Adjust the sensitivity of the microphone. Mic Normal should work for most instruments and conditions. If you play a quiet instrument, you may want to try the Mic Sensitive option for better response from the app. For some instruments, like electric guitars, you may find you need to plug the instrument into your device directly.

Game Speed Slow / Fast

Triads

In its most basic form, a chord is made of up of three notes called a triad. Each chord has three triads called inversions. Triads are made up of the root, 3rd and 5th intervals of the scale. Depending on which of these intervals is the bass note of the chord, determines the Triad's inversions. The Triad inversions are:
Root Inversion - Root, 3rd, 5th
1st Inversion - 3rd, 5th, Root
2nd Inversion - 5th, Root, 3rd

Triads are the building blocks to learning the fretboard. If you know the Triads you will understand how chords are constructed anywhere on the neck. If you can master Triads by ear, you will know the sound of the Fretboard!

The goal of this game is to learn to hear the three inversions of major and minor chords within a key. It will also help you master where to play the most common chords anywhere on the fretboard. There are multiple string combinations to visualize the triads. It is highly encouraged to master the game in all positions. Level 1 of the game starts with just two triads as possible answers. Each higher level adds difficulty by adding an additional triad to the list of potential answers. To complete a level and automatically advance, you need to get 98% of the answers correct.

An opening cadence will be played followed by a triad. Play back the three notes of the triad, each note individually (like the 3 Note Melody game). Play the first note's answer when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window. Wait for the answer to appear, then play the second note's answer when "Play" appears again, etc.

Power Chords

There are two Power Chord Games. Each will build your skills to recognize and play Power Chords Progressions. Power Chords, which technically aren't chords at all, as they are made up of just the root and 5th of the scale (it takes 3 notes to make a chord), are used extensively in modern music. They can be played anywhere on the guitar neck. Because Power Chords are easy to play and are used so often in guitar music, we believe if you can master the Power Chord Games in all keys you will be well on your way to playing any song by ear.

The goal of this game is to learn to hear the most common power chord changes. Level 1 of the game starts with just two chords as possible answers. Each higher level adds difficulty by adding an additional chord to the list of potential answers. To complete a level and automatically advance, you need to get 98% of the answers correct. As you master the levels of this game, it is recommended to move on to the Power Chord Changes game. The Power Chord Changes game will solidify your knowledge of some of the most common chords used in Rock and Pop music for the last 50 years.

Power Chord Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by one power chord. Play back either the chord or the root note of the chord when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window.

Power Chord Changes Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by up to four power chords. Play back either the chords or the root notes of the chords. Play the first chord's answer when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window. Wait for the answer to appear, then play the second chord's answer when "Play" appears again, etc.

Basic Chords

There are two Basic Chord Games. Each will build your skills to recognize and play Basic Chords Progressions. Basic Chords are typically the first chords that a guitarist will learn. Many of them are also called open chords or cowboy chords. They could be considered the fundamental chords. If you can master the Basic Chord Games in all keys, you will be well on your way to playing any song by ear.

The goal of this game is to learn to hear the most common Basic chord changes. Level 1 of the game starts with just two chords as possible answers. Each higher level adds difficulty by adding an additional chord to the list of potential answers. To complete a level and automatically advance, you need to get 98% of the answers correct. As you master the levels of this game, it is recommended to move on to the Basic Chord Changes game. The Basic Chord Changes game will solidify your knowledge of the most common Basic Chord changes.

Basic Chord Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by one Basic chord. Play back either the chord or the root note of the chord when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window.

Basic Chord Changes Game
An opening cadence will be played followed by up to four Basic chords. Play back either the chords or the root notes of the chords. Play the first chord's answer when you see the green word "Play" in the answer text area of the window. Wait for the answer to appear, then play the second chord's answer when "Play" appears again, etc.
