Ear Training, Half Step Down, and Cheese?
On this week's Live Lesson, the guys spend a good chunk of the hour discussing ear training. They talk about tuning forks vs digital tuners, and offer their advice for practical ear training. They have their weekly "We Heart Abe" chat and marvel over his ability to play just about everything. The guys wrap up the lesson by setting the rules for the next song writing challenge.
