Time to test your chord knowledge and musical ear. It’s pretty low tech:
– Grab a pen and paper.
– Answer the questions (using a ukulele to help you is entirely allowed and encouraged).
– There might be spoilers in the comments.
– Check the answers here (no peeking).
– Return in triumph or despair and share you score in the comments(some of these questions are pretty tricky, so not too much despair). And I’d be interested to know which rounds you found easy and which were hard.
If you’re reading by email or feed reader you may need to click through to the post to see everything.
Name the chord from the chord diagram (they’re major, minor, or 7).
Chord Flavour: Diagrams
All these are A chords but are they A, Am, A7, Am7, or Aadd9?
Chord Flavour: Listening
All these are C chords but are they C, Cm, C7, C6, or Cadd9?
Each of these triads of notes makes up a major chord (e.g. the notes of a G chord are G, B and D). Which one? (They’re listed in alphabetical order starting at C to make it harder.)
16. C, E and G.
17. C, F and A
18. C#, E and A.
19. D# F# and B.
20. Eb, G and Bb.
Match the MP3 to the chord sequence:
a) C – G7 – C – F
b) C – F – G7 – C
c) C – Em – F – C
d) C – Am – Em – F
e) C – A7 – D7 – G7
