This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending minor 7th. Listen to how close we are getting to the the descending Octave interval. Again, not many familiar melodies that begin with this interval. Maybe you could write a tune that starts with this one! 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 7th. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval other than the ones listed below post it in the comments section.
