Weekly Interval #10: Ascending minor 7th

Posted on: January 18th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the ascending minor 7th. Being a minor interval, the minor 7th has a dreamy, somewhat haunting sound.  Play the interval for yourself and see what it sounds like to your ears. Spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the ascending minor 7th. 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-A# (Bb)

Solfege Syllables: Do-Li (pronounced Doe-Lee)
Open 3rd string to 1st string, 1st fret

First two notes of:
Somewhere (A Place For Us) West Side Story
Theme from Star Trek
