I've been struggling with the interval stage 2 ans aural training stage 3 exams getting less than 50% right on tests.
Does anyone have any tips to assist in recognising chords? My method has been to determine if it's a sad or happy sound to identify minor or major than backing into the chord. It works sometimes but not most. Now at stage three there are 8 chords and it's two many to choose from I'm have a hard time recognising them. I am good at recognising the D And Dm chords. The other six chords sound so similar I struggle to differentiate the sounds.
For example E, Em , Am and A to me all get intertwined, cant quite tell the difference, if I could sort these out I'd be ok I think! I'd like to use Justin stay relaxed tip, but I cant help but getting frustrated and discouraged because I'm not seeing the progress like I do with improving scores om 1 minute changes.
Any suggestions to help here?
