Connect your chord ear training with your guitar playing by practising major, minor, diminished and augmented triad chords and their inversions on guitar.

As part of chord ear training you will want to practice with all inversions of chords. Here are some techniques to help you recognise triad inversions.
Intervals are the building blocks of the vital musical sense of relative pitch. Find out how you can do interval ear training as part of your guitar practice.
Consonance and dissonance can be the key to easier interval recognition. Learn about consonant and dissonant intervals in this tutorial.
Diminished and Augmented chords each have distinctive sounds and you can use the intervals within them to help you reliably recognise their inversions by ear.
We’ve previously covered how to recognize the different qualities of triad – major, minor, augmented and diminished. We can also learn to hear their inversions.
Once you’re comfortable with intervals and triads, we can start to work on seventh chords (popular in jazz, blues and pop music) with seventh chord ear training
Triad chords are the basis of all chords. Once you master major and minor triad chords, you should learn how to recognise augmented and diminished triads.
Triad chords are the basis of all chords, so they are a great way to start chord ear training. Learn how and get started recognising major and minor triads.
When you learn to recognize intervals you build your core sense of relative pitch which lets you play by ear, improvise and create your own music.
With ear training it is useful to have a basic methodology for building our skills. We are developing our relative pitch to recognise notes by ear.
Ear training is an integral part of our musical studies. We are developing our mind’s ear so we can accurately hear and identify the musical elements we hear.
