Right. Doing some interval training here and I thought it'd be cool to have a place where you can help relate intervals to well known songs. So, I'm gunna put down the ones I use and maybe you guys could contribute?

- Must be a well known song.

- Must be in standard tuning (I know it'll just be in a different key, but it'd be easier if we didn't have to tune our low E down to G# ). Don't want any stupidly low intervals.

- You must say what interval it is (duh)

- You must identify the interval within the tab, if you choose to post one.

- And that's it.

They are the ones that help me the most. They're the easier intervals though. But it's enough to get you started.

Hope this helps.

You have the Star wars theme tabbed out wrong. It goes 1 5 4 3 2 8 5... and so on.

It's also in the key of Bb.

The Jurassic park theme is also in Bb or D (depending on where in the film you hear it)

Edit: just realized the key doesn't matter...carry on

Yeah I was gunna say! It's the intervals that matter. And I'm pretty sure I've got the Star Wars Theme right. It was just tabbed awkwardly.

Ok, fair enough. That's why I'm doing interval training! But personally, I woulda played the A you changed at the seventh fret of the D. Keeps everything in one place then. But that's just me...

EDIT: And if it counts for anything, I worked it out without a reference (hence the different key) and I've never been a big fan of Star Wars.
