    Ear Training

    I dont know If I have to wait more But its is really hard for me to belive that one day I can do it ( figuring out how a song is play by listining to the song), if I just keep doing what I am doing right now.
    I listen to a song over and over again, I can seprate drums, bass, and guitars. But I cant decide what chord they are playing, how many time they play it, up or down stroke.
    Is there anyway to improve ear training? Programs on internet?
    Hats off to people who can do this man. I can see myself playing a fast solo that I cant play now, but picking up the song by ear is really a talent.

    Hm, yes, and it also has a price tag of 60 dollars...

    Any good freeware out there on the net...?

    Edit: Does anyone know how long the Ear Trainer Pro demo keeps working...? Or is it just limited in it's posibilities? Yes, I know I can try the demo myself, but I don't like to install stuff without knowing what I get... Before yuo know it, Windows is a big mess...

    Koala did that Stevevairules download work for you? I downloaded it, but cant seem to get it to unzip. I am a complete moron w/ computers though. I am super excited to get ear training underway. I always saw that perfect pitch article in Guitar mags, but was leary to purchase. Good luck!

    Yes it is out and the fans seem to be split on whether they like it or not. I love it! Cd universe has it and it ships right away. The production of the cd is really good, and lots of licks. It is a concept disc with weird park employees talking throughout the disc guiding guests to the attractions. He's got some new chops on this one, and it's pretty heavy for what he's been doing lately.

    Yes koala instead of being 19 he's in his early 30's, sort of similar to Bheadland, but his wallet produced much more fun!! Come back to Buckethead we need visitors. If you liked/understood b-headland 1 this in my humble opinion decimates any running guitar work. The guy is just sick when it comes to licks! If you have any feeling for the original, you WILL love the remake! I needed to listen a few times though!!!
