Hearing The Difference Between Chords!

Postby Chrisgjazzgig » Jun 20, 2017 12:31 pm

Hi All,

I've been working on hearing chords harmonically and the better I get at it and the more chords I learn, the harder it becomes. I've learnt so many chords now there is sometimes only subtle difference between chords. Because of this I'm struggling to hear the difference between certain chords. Particularly, m7b5 and m6 sometimes sound the same to me as do Sus2 chords and Sus4 chords. Can anyone help me out with these specific examples?

Hi Chris,

If you use another instrument sound in the exercises, is it then getting easier, even harder or just the same?
To change the instrument sound, you can go to EarMaster's preferences (from the home screen on iPad and from the TOOLS menu on Win/Mac).
