I stumbled upon this blog post in Reddit, and I found exercise no.3 in it very useful for ear training.

I know what he means by you can just play a scale and not hear its sound, how it differentiates from other scales you can play. All those colours, and internalising them.

What do you guys think of it?

Take it or leave it, the shadow is always there. Holding your hand. With a glass of ice cold lemonade in the other. Listening to reggae music. What more do you want?

Recently I've enjoyed a masterclass by Guthrie Govan; he said that if you want to really understand the sound of a scale, you must play it in a context, that means you should play it against a chord.

For example, play the A minor scale over a C major chord, and then play it over a A minor scale. The notes involved are the same, but the feeling is different.

The reason I wanted to play guitar was because I saw Buddy Holly and then our own homegrown Shadows on TV in 1957 or '58. I wanted to learn to play guitar so I could do what they did and be in a band. Peter Frampton
