Painfully rushed. Initially I sat down for a read and was excited as it begins with the lack of the average student to listen to a chord or progression and hear just the root notes, an undeniable fact. Looking forward to the solution to that I read on and met his first exercise:

using the modes of the major scale, harmonic minor, melodic minor and harmonic major, here's a chord progression that goes through all keys, listen to the chord, leave a beat to hear what chord it is, then play the given sound.

Riiiight.... so your introduction to ear training is to present a student with 12 keys, and 28 different modes? so right off the bat you need to be prepared to hear 336 different sounds and play them.... jesus... that's the goal you fool... not the FIRST EXERCISE!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Down the river without a paddle 13 May 2011
By Phillip - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've admired Steve Masakowski's playing and technique for some time, but this brief booklet leaves even the advanced student feeling a bit abandoned. Something like being given the boat without a paddle. The instructions and explanations are either too brief, cryptic or sometimes non-existent. The student is left on his own to play against backing tracks with very little guidance. As an advanced player, I clearly see the importance of ear training, but the author could have written a few more pages of guidance and been more generous with examples and sharing his vast knowledge.
