RECOGNISING KEYS BY CHORD SEQUENCES
« on: September 13, 2020, 04:21:27 pm »
I completed RECOGNIZING KEYS BY CHORD SEQUENCES from  music theory 4.2.I have a question which is as follows.
According to Justin you can figure out the key of a song visually by his technique( 5th and 6th string one) or by looking at the guitar by using tone apart and semitone apart as a hint. How can we do it by ear when we have no guitar in front of us ? How can we gauge whether its semitone or tone?

Most people can't. Reconizing intervals is easier tban reconizing actual chords is
more difficult.
The best way is to do ear training. Start with learning the dfference between major
and minor chords first. It takes most people many years to hear the pitch of individual
chords. So the moreyou train your ears the easier it become.

Yes, to be able to do that you need to do interval ear training and chordal recognition ear training. That and plenty of constructing chord progressions in the Major Key formula and figuring songs out by ear.
