Perfect Pitch Ear Training Device.
To use it: Click "clear" then click "perfect pitch" and the program will sound a random note. You can guess what the note is by clicking on the fretboard. If you are correct, it will show a green dot. If you are wrong, it will show a red dot where you clicked and a blue dot where the correct note actually was. If you have the right note but in the wrong octave, it will show purple dots in both spots. Whenever you get the right note or octave it stops the time clock. High scores are number correct (1 point each) plus correct octaves (1/2 point each) divided by elapsed time. You have to click in a least 10 guesses (right or wrong) to be able to enter a high score (if you get one).
The 10, 25, 100 drop down is as follows...
10 guesses, 7 seconds between.
25 guesses, 6 seconds between.
100 guesses, 5 seconds between.
If you pick incorrectly, those amounts of time are added into the divisor.
If you don't pick a particular note guess... nothing happens.
Anything is possible...
Whatever displays as the shortest chord name is usually (not necessarily) the best option to use, unless it says "11th" or "13th" somewhere in the display , then that is probably the chord in question and it's showing you what notes are also included in the chord. When it says 11th or 13th it means there is also a 7th included in the chord (any valid 9th, 11th or 13th chord also has a 7th in it), ... the rest of the chord names shown are the program forcing a chord name out of every single note that was picked in the chord. This program will tell you exactly what's in the chord, if's and's and but's. For instance if you're showing a minor chord (minor third) but you also have the third in it, it will say so... m w3 || Rm33 (root, minor third, with 3) ... anything that is usually in a chord but now omitted is x'd out... no5 no3 etc..
in the result means minor chord or minor third (augmented 9th and minor third are the same notes),
You can click on any name found then edit it in the top box (the default) to anything you want and it will be used in the print display. This allows for anything you can think of.
What's with all the colors?
Click one, find out.
The display after the chord name...
|| R is the Root, then the exact notes usedinthe chord.
Here's the whole shebang || R, d2, 2, m3, 3, 4, d5, 5, a5, 6, b7, 7,
That's Root , dim second, second, minor third, third, fourth, dim fifth, fifth, aug fifth, sixth, flat seven (7th), seven (maj7)
If any display in this format has an extra (more than one) 2, 5, or 7 in it, i.e. d22, 5a5, b77, you can usually rule it out.
m33 mightactually be something because augmented 9th and minor third are the same notes
example... "C seventh sharp ninth" is a valid chord... C 7th aug9 w3|| Rm335b7
Clear | Sharps | Flats |
This Clear will clear the display only
Default setting for program note display is most common enharmonic value...
C , C# , D , Eb , E , F , F# , G , Ab , A , Bb , B

Anytime you find a chord or scale you like click "save". When you have all the chords and scales you want click "display" and you'll be able to print or save the page. To start over or make
a new page... click "reset" and it will reset the print page.
If the # octothorpe is checked the black keys in the print display will be that |#| symbol. If un-checked it will display a black box █ in print, it looks nice but not all computers have it.
If you want your name or a title on the page click ... title
a ninth note (the same note
as second). If you add the 9th note to any chord it would be
considered an "add9" chord.
In an true "ninth" chord the "flat seventh" is also included 1, 3, 5, b7, 9
a "C9th" or "C7th" chord the "flat 7th" or "b7"...usually just called "7th"is
a "Bb or A# note").
Any chord that says major... "major ninth", "major thirteenth"
means the seventh note has been raised 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
(not the ninth or the
thirteenth). If the program shows"9" in the display
it means the 9th note (or 2nd) is included in the chord. If the
program shows something like "minor ninth" you've actually found a
true ninth chord variation.
2(9) mnemonic memory device:
2 + 7 = 9
an eleventh (the same note as fourth).
In an true "eleventh" chord 1, 3, 5, b7, 9, 11
the ninth and the flat seventh are also included but the 5th and 9th or the 3rd and 5th are usually omitted
4(11) mnemonic memory device:
4 + 7 = 11
the thirteenth (the same note as sixth),
A true "13th" chord includes the... 1, 3, 5, b7, 9, 11, 13
(seven different notes)
but the 5th and the 9th or the 9th and the 11th are commonly omitted from chord.
6(13) mnemonic memory device:
6 + 7 = 13
