    Don't worry about me. I practice real music all the time, but I am fascinated to play by ear. In the near future, I plan to get hypnotized so I can get Perfect Pitch.

    April 30, 2014 - After many months of saving money, I finally purchased P.I.T.C.H. ear training software by Jermaine Griggs and Improvisor by invite software. These will be my staple programs to help me develop relative pitch and I plan to get hypnotized so I can get Perfect Pitch. By the way I will be going to York University and Humber College so their Aural Training courses will also help.

    May 24, 2014 - I am using Improvisor on a regular basis now. I had some advice from several people on how to make my ear training more progressive. I configured the program to start with a small subset of scale degrees and just practicing with one key. So I am right now practicing do re mi and different variations of those solfege in the key of C Major. I also plan to purchase guitar ear trainer. I was impressed by my guitar teacher that he can transcribe complicated chord voicings with ease. He just listens to it. So hopefully I will develop "perfect" relative pitch on the guitar with guitar ear trainer and start doing that.

    I'm not a fan of hypnotism, but I'll do anything to get Perfect Pitch. If someone invented a magic pill to help you get perfect pitch and It's worth a million dollars; I'll do anything to get it.

    May 24, 2015 - Another aspect about ear training I learned from my guitar teacher is to sing. Singing is important. I will try to sing while practicing ear training. Singing is not a problem to me. I actually wanted to be a good singer like Tommy Giles and John Lennon.

    June 5, 2014 - I recently have been admitted to York University. I applied for two programs: Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music and I was accepted in both. I obviously chose the Music Program because I am into music. This is not really the end of the journey, I will still apply for more schools. It's a great feeling being accepted but I would definitely feel great if I have Perfect Pitch. Let this be a start of something great.

    June 6, 2014 - I was working on Improvisor Software with the solfege syllables do and re in the key of C Major. I did the exercise for 10 minutes without making a mistake. I am still uncertain a bit, but there's no point sticking in the key of C. I will now add G Major and see if it gets confusing.

    June 25, 2014 - I purchased Chord Id. I used it today and it will help me with the feel of the chord changes. I'm not sure if they have any non - diatonic chord movement, but it's enough to help me in the mean time.

    July 4, 2014 - I learned an ear training and improvisation technique from my guitar teacher, and that is singing what you play. I also discovered that Steve Vai, Janek Gwizdala, and many other musicians use this type of technique. So I am also doing that right now.
