Weekly Interval #3:
Ascending minor 3rd

Posted on: January 25th, 2011 by dville

This week’s guest on the Weekly Interval is the ascending minor 3rd. The minor 3rd is a rockin’ and bluesy interval but at the same time has all the sensitivity of a melancholy minor  interval.  Remember to spend a week with this interval, play it in different keys, and listen for the melodies of familiar songs to jump out as you practice listening to the the ascending minor 3rd. If you do hear the melody to a song that starts with this interval post it in the comments section.

Key of C: C to Eb

Solfege Syllables: Do-Ri (pronounced Doe-Ree)
First two notes of: 
Blues Scale
Smoke On The Water
Greensleeves
Iron Man
Theme From Rocky
