Help with interval please!
« on: July 18, 2008, 06:13:08 PM »

Hi All - One of the things that helps me learn to sing a new song is to match the intervals in the song to other songs that are burned into my brain. So, for example, in my mind I sing:

1) "Born Free" to go down from a note to its 5th (like a G to a D);
2) "Twinkle Twinkle" to go up from a note to its 5th (like a G to a D)
3) The first two notes of the TV jingle from "N-B-C", to go up a 6th,
4)  "Here Comes the Bride" to go up a 4th.
5) To go down from the major 3rd of a chord to the dominant (like an E to a C) - I use a weird one, "Da---rryl", they used to mock a certain baseball player in the 80's in Yankee Stadium with that (Daryll Strawberry). I'm sure there are more musical ones, but that works for me!
6) That 70's song "Feelings" to go down from a note to it's minor third (like from an E to a G).

Can someone help me out with some of these others please (it's for a harmony to Sheryl Crow's "First Cut is the Deepest")? If it's an interval embedded in a major verse from a Beatles hit, that would be great, as it would definitely qualify as "burned into my brain"!

1. Up an augmented 4th (for example, a G to a C#).
2. Down from the dominant of a chord to the tonic (for example, a G to a C).
3. Down a minor 3rd (for example, a D to a B). I sing "Duke of Earl" to get this, but it takes too long  :)

And ... if you know any other intervals, please pass those along too!

I know after a while the intervals become instinctive, but it sure helps me to think in these terms when starting out.

Thanks  :)
