Weekly Interval #20: Descending Minor 6th

Posted on: January 8th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending minor 6th. I could not find many songs that start with this interval. All the more reason to get this one stuck 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 neck and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the descending minor 6th. 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 E
Solfege Syllables: Do-Mi (pronounced Doe-Me)
First two notes of:
Your Everything

First and third notes of:

Misty

    Sounds like the first two notes of the theme to Love Story.
