I got a questions from one of our listeners, Andrew about how he could improve his skills of learning tunes by ear. I thought that this was a great topic to do an episode on as it concerns one of the most important parts of playing jazz: ear training. This is a particularly hard part of ear training because it requires us to figure out harmony as well as melody and rhythm.
This skill can also come in very handy when we want to play a tune or piece that has not been charted out anywhere. This week’s episode doesn’t contain any PDF’s and is just a short run through of my process for figuring out tunes using nothing but my ears.
This was a tough episode for me because I could have talked about this for an hour. I wanted to keep with the 10 minute theme so I had to stop myself and just give you an overview of the process. If any listeners out there have any further questions about this process, don’t hesitate to drop me a line, I would be happy to clarify anything or dig a little deeper into the process with you. Enjoy this week’s episode!
