In the next set of lessons, we will hear 6ths and 7ths played as chords and try to identify them.
Here is an example of each:
|Minor 6th  ||
|Major 6th  ||
|Minor 7th  ||
|Major 7th  ||
When played as chords, the key is to judge the level of dissonance or roughness of each interval.
Imperfect consonances then to have an warm, emotional quality.
Weak dissonances tend to be rough but somewhat neutral.
Strong dissonances sound quite harsh.
|Interval  ||Category  ||Example|
|Minor 6th  ||Imperfect Consonance||
|Major 6th  ||Imperfect Consonance    ||
|Minor 7th  ||Weak Dissonance||
|Major 7th  ||Strong Dissonance||
