Weekly Interval #2:
Ascending Major 2nd

Posted on: January 26th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the Major 2nd. This is our first major interval in our 24 week trip up and down each interval of the C Chromatic Scale.  Remember to spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, and listen for the melody to a familiar song to jump out as you practice listening to the Major 2nd. You may notice that the Major 2nd is a very even sounding interval, unlike the tension found in the interval of the minor 2nd. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval post it in the comments section.

Ascending Major 2nd: C to D
Solfege Syllables: Do-Re (pronounced Doe-Ray)
Open 3rd string to 3rd string, 2nd fret
First two notes of:
Major Scale
Brother John 
This Land Is Your Land
Silent Night 
Doe A Deer
Tennessee Waltz
Body And Soul
