Is there a thread that outlines what steps you took to get to where you are at? What sort of training has been the most helpful?

Photoshop can do it for sure... -rasterize the note -select the note -select->modify->border->1 -fill that in with black any color -bring that to a new layer -delete your old layer and you should be left with just the outline of the note If that doesn't make sense, I'd be happy to help out if you wa...

I don't think someone who is not colorblind could keep themselves dedicated enough to do this 24 hours per day. It is fascinating though for sure.

Agreed! That melody crutch is next to useless... much better to be able to hear Do Fa, as Do Fa. Not as Sol Do from "Here Comes the Bride."

Having just read your explanation I think I understand it a bit better. Still though, should I be thinking I chord, IV chord, V chord? Or trying to ID notes by chroma? Right now I'm getting confused because sometimes the F chord sounds like the I and sometimes the C sounds like the I.

That program you shared is unbelievable, Lyle. Thanks very much. Any ideas why I keep getting a divide by 0 crash? Oh well... The singing input is really quite fun.

First steps in Fletcher

Hello there! I've been asked to teach a five year old boy how to play guitar. Now I know that the Fletcher Method is designed for a group, but I am going to try my best to adapt the concepts of having fun learning to a one on one situation. I'll let you all know how that works out... In the meantime...

NY Times article, 1913

I can't believe how little information is available about Fletcher! If not for this site I certainly would have never found out about her. Anyways, I did find one interesting thing...

Hey Lyle, thanks for sharing your experiences. I don't have much free time lately but I have been listening as you recommended whenever I get a chance. I realized that what I theorized earlier is correct... not only was I not hearing the overtones clearly, I was not hearing the fundamental frequency...

Hey Lyle, thanks for sharing the files, very interesting. The ones labeled "-10," are those highlighting the fundamental? It sounds lower than the fundamental pitch to me!

Chris, I never realized that non-AP listeners are making only one judgement but now that you say it I know it to be true for myself. If I never noticed the overtones... maybe I never noticed the fundamental pitch either. Maybe I've just been lumping the entire sound into the idea of how high it is. ...

The Frequency Response Theory

There is an AP method out there, I forget the name of it, that claims that the human ear has a unique frequency response such that each note takes on a different quality. He attributes this to the balance of overtones we hear for each different pitch. IE, an F# will have more 5th harmonic than Eb do...

Well, I think what separates interval loader is that you've put a lot of thought into what order the information is presented in and it's a game, not a test. Those other programs that I mentioned are pretty much, you choose what to be tested on, they test you, you get a percentage and passing/failin...
