Weekly Interval #19: Descending Perfect 5th

Posted on: January 9th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending Perfect 5th. As we’ve already heard, the ascending Perfect 5th interval is one of the most recognizable to the human ear. The descending Perfect 5th on the other hand is most recognizable to Morris Albert fans.  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 Perfect 5th. 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 F
Solfege Syllables: Do-Fa (pronounced Doe-Fah)
1st string, 3rd fret to 2nd string, 1st fret
First two notes of:
