I am right there with you. Strum patterns are straight up for me, but I am really now putting the effort into my ear. It is so amazing to experience the development, albeit slow. If I can fully develop my pitch, I will feel like I have really achieved something special and of great value (to me anyway). Just work at it a bit each day, and my tip is to sing the chords in arpeggios…sing everything..it seems to sink into the brain easier.
Strumming patterns and alternate picking patterns in licks and riffs have always been really easy for me to pick up in songs. The only thing that REALLY REALLY bothers me is learning pitch. I can never seem to do it. Techniques, shapes, and scales are easy stuff. Learning pitch, now that shit is HARD!
I also highly recommend you join Next level guitar:)

m7b5′s are used as ii chords in minor ii-V sequences. Dim7′s are used as subs for the V, built off the 3rd it gives you a 7b9 tonality. Dim7′s are used as secondary diminished chords to any diatonic chord in the key. They’re used for a variety of things…and honestly, they sound fine by themselves.
thank you so much for helping us beginners in ear training, I played a long time but this is the proper way.

really good relative pitch or perfect pitch
you can see when he changes the chord lol
diminished chords are more used in piano
Oh right, I think I get the concept…. think I will give that a go, not one for Jazz to be honest but I like to give anything a go. Thanks for that.
Diminished chords are used as “passing chords” in jazz. For example, they are used to connect two chords to create a chromatic moving bassline. G6-G#dim-Am7 with a G-G#-A bass line sound cool. But as you said the diminished chord alone doesn’t sound too good.
how can i possibly decide which key it is withou touching my guitar O_o
I can tell when its minor major or etc
this is a great lesson, kindof like a quiz… are there any other lessons like this anywhere?
A lot of metal shredders use them (Yngwie Malmsteen, Muhammed Suicmez, sometimes Alexi Laiho), but I never really hear them as chords. They sound great if they are arpeggiated for sweep picks though.
Whats the point in deminished chords? can any1 tell me, I listen to them and just think they sound ugly as if your guitar is out of tune. I understand Major, minor, 7th, suspended ect but I cannot possibly come to grips why any1 would put deminished chords in there music. gr8 lesson btw thank u
are you mad at me?
I’d rather FEEEL the COP!
keep plucking that string for 30 min
it workrd for me
How can I memorize lets say an E? I can only remember it for a few hours.
guitar nazi. AHAHAH. =)))
Awesome teaching. I think I just got better. @-)
“Guitar Nazi over there”…that was funny…Great teaching man, and thank you.

@jet07son hahah why you say he ll molest your children??
