I have a silly question about this one.

First, for me, it was super easy to get through. I figured things out quite quickly.

There is one thing that throws me off though. The first Solo of the Minor Pentatonic file is based on the D Minor Pentatonic sale, correct?

No.  It was Am pentatonic (A C D E G).  Didn't hear an F that would make it Dm pentatonic (D F G A C -> A C D F G).

There is only that one note difference between the two.

When you play the standard D Minor Pentatonic, the E note doesn't appear, but somehow sounds great in this riff. Is this because he's using the Natural D Minor scale instead of the pentatonic? And if so, are the two interchangeable when soloing?

The 2 is going to work more often than not when using a minor pentatonic.  (An E note in Dm pentatonic or an B note in Am pentatonic).  Could be using Natural Minor or Dorian scales as both include the 2.

It is getting very frustrating. I am fine with figuring out the chords and strumming patterns. Somehow I have to slow it down to figure strumming patterns out. I have a problem with tabs. I now practice makes it better. I do that over a week now and every time I look and see if it is correct I see the parts that are wrong and I am going to remember it. It doesn't help train my ears.

Rolandson,

I'm not quite sure what the questions is that you are asking ... but then I am still in BC so lack context of exactly what this IM lesson is all about ...

You also have the Justin method at the bc. You look if it is correct when you listen to chords. If are a few chords wrong you probably remember the correct chords. Anyway figuring out tabs is frustrating

Just checked IM118. I see it is ear training. I've not invested time in this...kept busy enough with the pkaying techniques.  So am now wondering if there is something specific that is making things frustrating with tab, eg is it writing out progressions in tab or reading. Need to be more specific if you are hoping for some help. But if just expressing frustration to feel better, then persevere and I'm sure you'll get it sorted out in due course

The listening part is frustrating. No problem with reading them.

I did it. It took me 45 minutes but I did it with no mistake. I thought I could never get it right. The program transcribe is amazing. Without that it would be difficult. I definitely can move to stage 2 next week.

I HATED this sort of thing when I had to do it at school! But then, my school music department HATED the guitar and any form of popular or rock music. As such, there was NEVER any practical application of the ear training that we did. No playing by ear, no ensemble playing (actually very little playing full stop), and certainly no improvisation.

This is so much better. Kudos for the design and application.

Just did this exercise today. Am scale notes easy peasy, likewise rhythms but I’m hopeless at working out the chords. Didn’t have this amount of trouble with the BC chord recognition. Anyone suggest how to improve this aspect of sound recognition?

Just did the Justin method on stage 2 without any mistake. I never thought that is possible but my ears really got better when it comes to write a melody. I will definitely buy more stuff from the shop. This is the best method to practice guitar.

When transcribing rhythm from just claps isn't there a large amount of ambiguity?

Whenever I hear and eighth note combined with an eighth rest, couldn't it just as well be a quarter note with out a rest? How can you tell which is witch?

For example:
Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Rest, Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Note

Couldn't it just as well be:
Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Quarter Note                  , Eighth Note, Eighth Note, Eighth Note

No, the eighth note and rest will fit in the same time frame as the quarter note. There is another 8th note and rest in the quarter note rest.
8 r 8 r 8 r 8 r
4    r   4    r

In the answer sheet of IM-118 the second chord sequence is : F B Bm F. But the B and Bm sounds like A# and A#m . So I need confirmation if the answer sheet is correct or I'm mistaking . Sorry for not so organized and Un-gental way of describing :)
