"Hey ganon, I am working on Volume 2. It is slow going but I am making progress. I am better able to pick out chord changes at jams. Still have a long way to go, but definately making progress!"

Hi Lora, welcome to the Ear Learning group. Has been quiet here for a while, but I think an important subject that is not well addressed on the 'other site'. Specifically, I'd like to find guidance for how older people can actively improve their 'analytical' hearing. Seems many of those that are good at it assume that it just happens 'organically' with enough exposure - I'm not so sure.
