Have you ever heard a song or arrangement and wished you could recognize the chords or progressions? Well, Doug Zangar has done it again with his second installment of ear training, this time focused on Triads.

Doug begins with the basics of creating chords or "Triads" as well as arpeggios. He then starts with Triads in Root Position, teaching you how to listen and recognize them. Major, Minor, Diminished and Augmented Triads are all explored and Doug gives you a test on them to see if your ears are locking in on the different types.

Next up are the different Triads in First Inversion, as well as a test to see how well you can identify them. Doug then goes a step further and introduces Second Inversion triads in all the different flavors and gives you a test on those as well.

Wrapping up the series are 3 mixed tests and 2 final exams that give your ears the ultimate workout! Once you have these lessons down, you'll be a walking Triad recognizer, instantly hearing what's really going on in your favorite music... Watch "Ear Training Explained - Triads" today.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I started playing a bit of guitar and piano in the mid-60’s as a small child. Nothing really stuck until my first electric guitar and ensuing garage band in high school. By my last year of high school I was studying jazz guitar and the music bug had bitten.

2. What training have you had?

I went on to get a BFA in music (magna cum laude) from Cornish College of the Arts, emphasizing jazz guitar. Faculty at that time included Gary Peacock, Art Lande and Marius Nordal. I also completed the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, where I studied with Hummie Mann. Additionally, I have become a certified trainer for Apple’s Logic Pro software on versions 6, 7, and 8.

3. When did you get into recording?

My first home recording gear was purchased in the mid ‘80s. It consisted of a Tascam Porta One and a Roland 505 drum machine. By the late 80’s the Atari 1040 ST and Logic’s predecessor, Notator 2.0 were purchased. Digital audio didn’t arrive at the home studio until the early ‘90’s, with Digidesign’s Session 8.

4. People you have worked with/for?

My professional career has included working with Pavarotti, Vic Damone and Diahann Carroll. I have written music for commercials on television and radio and scored independent films. Studio work includes performing on as well as arranging and producing many CD projects. I have also helped many Seattle area musicians work with Logic.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I draw from my formal education, 4 years of running the Seattle Logic User Group, over 20 years of teaching music at the community college level and 30 years real-world experience working in the music business to give you a lot of insights and tips and tricks on how to use Logic to help create and refine your work.
