Chord progressions

In this excercise you will play chord progressions of increasing difficulty by ear. If you play a harmonic instrument and want to play songs by ear this is the most important excercise for you. Just finish the first two levels and you will be able to pick up all the three chord songs out there. If you play a melodic instrument, you still need to practice this excercise to hear harmonic changes.

Press the play button to hear a progression. Use replay to repeat it. The first chord of the progression is always the major/minor root chord. Play the progression by pressing corresponding chord buttons. The progress bar above the play button shows how many more progressions you need to play correctly to reach the next level.

Advice on ear training

Practice every day. 20 minutes is more than enough. Sing along with the progression. Choose one key and stick to it during your ear training. At least do not change it during one session. Consider melodic dictation to train your pitch for melodies. If you want to train your ear specifically for intervals recognition or for absolute pitch, use this and this excercises.
