Weekly Interval #11: Ascending Major 7th

Posted on: January 17th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the ascending Major 7th. We are now getting dangerously close to the interval of the octave, so the Major 7th has a feeling of impending resolution.  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 Major 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 to B
Solfege Syllables: Do-Ti (pronounced Doe-Tea)
Open 3rd string to 1st string, 2nd fret
First two notes of:
The Sabre Dance
Fantasy Island
