This lesson follows up the Diatonic Interval Ear Training lesson with the five chromatic intervals: the minor 2nd, minor 3rd, augmented 4th/diminished 5th, minor 6th and minor 7th. Learn how to associate these intervals with the first few notes of standard jazz tunes and then take a quiz to test your ability to hear them. An additional quiz tests you on all twelve intervals, the eight diatonic intervals from the Diatonic Interval Ear Training lesson and the five chromatic intervals from this lesson.
