Any tips for how to hear the root note of a chord, especially when that chord could be inverted.
Context: what I'm trying to do is figure out chord progressions by ear. And my understanding is if I hear the root that is essentially the chord name (modified to either be a major or minor sound).
The way I've been doing it is I just play bass notes with whatever I am listening to, and the bass notes that I play are usually the roots. But I'm wondering if there's any tips for finding those roots, usually I just try to encapsulate the sound of a chord that I'm hearing into a single note, and that usually is the root but I'm not sure if this is a good way.
