Weekly Interval #24: Descending Perfect 8th

Posted on: January 3rd, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the descending Perfect 8th. This is the last stop on our descending journey down the intervals of the chromatic scale. But don’t stop here! Make ear training with the intervals a part of your daily practice. You may think it’s slow going and the rewards are not immediate, but over time this training will benefit you the most when finding melodies, and playing them back, on your instrument.

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 8th. 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 C
Solfege Syllables: Do-do (pronounced Doe-doe)

First Two Notes of:

Willow Weep For Me

    Jim, the first two notes of “Willow Weep For Me” are quoted for both the Dec Major 7th and Dec Perfect 8th.
    I’m not sure at present which is correct but I know they cant both be… Gerry
