I face problems with remembering the intervals of pentatotonics and scales.
I have not played for a while and so I seem to have forgotten a lot… I thought I knew it but I think I was wrong…
I somehow manage to fret them on the guitar (due to S_E-PR I guess:o) ) but when someone would ask me which shape/scale has which intervals I am lost in most times.
I think that triads, pentatonics and the scales are the building blocks/DNA of mostly everything.
So now I try to find another way to memorize.
So my question to you is: “How do you remember all the intervals?”
I am trying a new way for me – with more viszualtions.
use of basic color coding – yellow is major, blue is minor, red are the intervals of the triad
triads – happy yellow guy with R-3-5, sad blue guy with R-m3-5 (
pentatonics – happy guy holding 2 and 6, sad one 4 and b7
scales – yellow 47-dogs for major, blue 26-sloths for minor. depending with scales they are they are standing, sitting, hanging and so on
Next would be to find places for the roman numbers and the combinations of guys and animals (I – happy guy with running dog, V – happy guy with sitting dog, IV – sad guy with sloth…
Something like that…
So what are your visuals – or don’t you use any?
