and stop thinkin about it. im sure this tutorial will bring me back to the
future! thank you sir!?

thanks this is very helpful smiles from Cape Town?

Thanks Andy, glad that I can be of assistance. There are sooooooo many
tracks that have these intervals in, too many to list, but hopefully you’ll
get an ear for them!

Hi Ice, It’s called a minor 7th because it’s the 7th degree of the minor
scale. In western music heptatonic (7 unique tones per octave) is the most
common form of scale. To work out the notes in a minor scale, take any
starting note on the keyboard, then you can work out the intervals with the
formula TSTTSTT – where T=tone, and S=semitone. Semitone is the adjacent
note, Tone is the next but one. Let me know if you need any help with this!

Thanx for this tut. Sound great so i am going to experient with this 🙂
