    Do you hum or sing when practising intervals? I usually hum…and every know and again I’d do the whole Do-Re-Mi-…thing.

    Humming works for me but when I try to do it with my phones in my ears it buzzes.

    I tend to hum or sing to myself, in extreme situations I’ll sing them

    @zeitaliesin Do you sing in general? I don’t have a singing voice, so its no good.

    I don’t know if I’d call it singing, but it’s my full voice, not a hum. I revert to the Do Re Mi a lot too. I think because I don’t have any voice training & I don’t sing, so it’s hard for me to use my voice in small increments. but the Do Re Mi think makes sense to me & it helps.

    I agree, the Do-Re-Me works, but it is only for whole notes (or shall I say for the major scale).

    So no semitones or such…

    I usually sing, especially with solfege. It’s really interesting to see how others choose to practice.

    @caylalayman I assume then that you are a singer as well?

    Can ear training help some like me sing more on the right note? :)

    Yes! I dabble a little bit in piano and sang in the state choir when I was younger. Admittedly, I was pretty rusty. Ear training has really helped me go from just singing in the car to actually sounding like something again.

    You know what I realized, even when I’m not practising on my guitar but doing ear training there is improvement in my playing guitar. I told Christopher that I could actually pick a hymn from anywhere after doing just a little ear training.

    So ear training is really a must if a person wants to have that extra mastering of music.

    I just stumbled across this…very interesting. I think this could also be a good way to practice.
