Major 7ths Playing By Ear Chord

In this lesson, you will hear Major 7ths played as chords, then play them on your instrument.

A Major 7th is considered a strong dissonance because of it’s rough sound.




The inversion of a Major 7th is a Minor 2d. When played as chords, these two sound very similar.

If you struggle hearing the difference with these, or any other intervals, consider taking a Custom Lesson.
