Weekley Interval #23: Descending Major 7th

Posted on: January 5th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending Major 7th. This is the last stop on our descending journey down the intervals of the scale before we reach the Octave. Again, not many familiar melodies that begin with this interval.  Play the interval on your instrument. Listen to it. Spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, different areas of the neck and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the descending major 7th. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval other than the one listed below post it in the comments section.


Key of C: Octave C to Db
Solfege Syllables: Do-Ra (pronounced Doe-Rah)
1st string, 3rd fret to 3rd string 1st Fret
 
Not many songs use this interval to start with.
