Bass Guitar / Re: Have Perfect Pitch; how do you internalize the home key?
« Last post by Blue in Green on October 15, 2018, 07:28:34 PM »
Hello all,

A couple years ago, I posted in several music forums for advice, and got some really good advice. However, I have not made much of a breakthrough, so will try and rephrase my questions:

I think that my major problem is this:

When I hear any note, not only do I know exactly what note it is, I hear the specific register the note is in and base all other intervals off that note. The big problem, is that the other notes (whether they are part of the current chord or part of another chord) may be in different registers. As a result, I have to hear in both ascending AND descending intervals.

When I am trying to figure out the root of each chord progression, and the root of the new chord progression is descending, I have taught myself to hear that:

1)      A descending minor 2nd is the 7th,

2)      A descending 2nd is a flat 7th

3)      A descending minor 3rd is a 6th………………… and so on

Here’s an example:

1.       If a song is I-VI-II-V-I, and I establish the original register of the home key as C3 (third register of C), then I will hear the subsequent II-V-I in ascending intervals ABOVE C3.

2.       However, if the I-VI-II-V-I  is in different registers BELOW C3, for example: C3-A3-D2-G2-C3, I will hear it as:

a.       C3 (Original Register)

b.       A3 (Ascending sixth)

c.       D2 (Descending minor 7th, which is the II)

d.       G2 (Descending fourth, which is a V)

e.       C3 (Original Register)


As you can see, I have to hear in both ascending AND descending intervals. The above example only is for the root of the chord progression. When I start adding in the non-root elements, like the 3rd, and 5th, etc, then my hearing get’s more and more complicating and exhausting.


Any suggestions to break through this problem?

Hello everyone,

Just checking in to see what's happening. I still peek in from time to time. A lot of things have changed for me. I am no longer playing for my church...which kinda prevented me from learning or keeping up with new songs.  I still play my keyboard and post videos of me playing via FB @ virtuouslygifted and Instagram @ virtuously_gifted.  Right now I'm focusing on combining my 2 loves #1: being a musician and #2: being a beautician.  Hence I call myself Virtuously Gifted...The Musician Beautician  :D I have been spending a lot of time focusing on the beautician side. But my music is still #1.  Love you all and if you want to hear some of my music please like my page, follow me on Instagram or simply be my friend on FB: Valeria Porter :)
