Suggetions on how will I develop the ability to identify pitches, chords etc.
Anybody has excperience with this http://www.perfectpitch.com/ ?

It promises way to much to be true.
I'm starting this at the moment. I'll let you know how I get on.
I'm assuming that any promise of future ability comes with the promise of hard work before that.

I really have to change my avatar I think, no more family portraits :D

No, must have been a look-a-like, it has been about 4 years since my last visit to Greece and I was on Crete back then.


@Jolle, that's a nice program, I've got the trial version installed now, thanks.

I don't recall it exactly, but that should be about a year now. I will buy it though, just need my own computer. I'm now working with one of the job, so if I have my own, I'll have to buy and register it again. So I wait for a while.

A bit more info on "Earmaster Pro" (www.earmaster.com)

It's a program that is working on a lot of different things, including :
- recognizing intervals
- recognizing chords
- recognizing chord progressions
- reading, reproducing, writing rythms
- melodic writing
- ...

The lessons (and there are a LOT) are going from extremely simple (is this a minor or a major chord) to complex altered chords and cyncopated jazz rythms. They're presented in a logical order in every topic.

I don't work with it every day, although I should do so. Still I found it a GREAT help for my musical skills, both reading and listening. It helped me tremendously in learning to find out what exactly is going on in a song.

Highly recommended

I installed the earmaster yesterday and I can say that my first impressions are very positive.
I tried the rythmic excersises and stuck for hours.
I can't say to what degree yet, but it's realy helpfull and realy fun.
