This week we come to a conclusion in the interval trilogy as we cover all dissonant intervals. The Minor and Major 2nds, 7ths, and the Diminished 5th.
In this episode I touch base on what separates these intervals from the rest, namely the sound and feel they naturally produce. These intervals are, in my humbling opinion, in a sort of handle with care category. They don’t naturally sound comfortable so using them can be a bit trickier. The exercise is also a bit more cumbersome. It’s a very similar formula to the previous exercises, but the locations of the notes from each root note is a little odd and the B string’s tuning certainly doesn’t do much to help. Just take it easy and you should be ok.
Stay tuned next week where we’ll take an overall look at intervals as a whole.
