hey - i've been wondering how to pick out chords by ear. i can work out the root and whether it's major or minor and obvious riffs. but subtleties evade me (i.e. 13ths b5s etc.)
as a jazz man this can be a problem... what's the best way to train my ear? (i've got a considerably theory background) any easy places to start?

haha - probably some mccoy tyner isn't the best place to start though :S

EDIT: that ear trainer is fantastic

that always helps me train my ear for intervals, but not specific chords.

idk, i guess just listen to jazz songs and practice trying to learn the chords by ear.
practice makes perfect =]

psst.

If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

...so nobody looked at the list of Trainers it has, like the Sheet music trainer, fretboard trainer, scale trainer, even the piano key trainer?

But still, glad to help.
