This question already has an answer here:
For those of you that care about it, how do YOU remember all your intervals? As more intervals have become second nature to me, its been a huge advantage in both creative soloing/composing, and for quickly learning melodies. If you agree that working toward perfect "relative" pitch is useful, what's your technique been?
My best effort so far is that I've created a chart, with all intervals from m2 through maybe P9th on the left, followed by at least one song 'ascending" with that interval, and at least one or descending. Simple example: HERE COMES (the bride) is a 4th going UP, TOY LAND is a 4th going down. By picking a random interval each day and looking at my chart, I think of the song(s), confirm it on my instrument, and over time it sticks. Then for that interval I eventually don't need to think of the song, because the "sound" has finally been finally. I must confess its taking me a long time though, and I still have some gaps in my chart (I have no song with a b5 going DOWN for example). Can anyone tell me of some other methods for remembering your intervals?
