Week Interval #16: Descending Major 3rd

Posted on: January 12th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending Major 3nd. Beethoven used this interval and you can too! Just get the sound in your ears. Play the interval on your instrument. Listen to it. Spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, different areas of the scale and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the descending major 3nd. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval other than those listed below post it in the comments section.


Key of C: C to Ab
Solfege Syllables: Do-Lay (pronounced Doe-Lay)
1st string, 3rd fret to 2nd string 4th fret
First two notes of (not necessarily C to Ab) :
Summertime
Giant Steps
Beethoven’s 5th (G-G-G-Eb)
