Essential Ear Training system - part 1- melody chord relationships

This Ear Training System is about getting to know/becoming friends with each note of the major scale - how each one is unique in its relation to the tonic or root chord. To facilitate this process each degree is associated with well known tunes by Queen, Bach, Mozart, The Beatles, The Police, Beethoven, Hoagy Carmichael and many others! In the video I talk about 'musical gravity' and the harmonic series and give tests and suggest ways to practice, strengthen this the essential Skill that is of paramount importance for the musician.

suggestions for more songs greatly appreciated in the comments especially major 7th and 4ths!!!
