I appreciate these tips, too. Inversionist is one of my worst games. Thank you!!

Thanks for the tips everybody! I'll try them out. I hadn't actually been trying to listen to the individual notes within the chord, but this seems like a good idea. I find I do just get a sense for it over time too

Do y'all apply similar methods to Route VI (the chord progression game)?
I am finally off level 9 of Route VI with one whole life left! Wow - there must be a wrinkle in the universe...

@Michael Valenti: I don't think it's cheating at all. When trying to figure out a chord progression, of course you are going to use your instrument to do so! Wouldn't you be using that same instrument to play the progression?

I use an instrument to match notes I hear in each chord and infer the progression from the intervals between the notes I hear. That is, if I can't do it just from the pattern of chord quality (major, minor, diminished), listening for tension, common tones, etc., which is often sufficient, but not always.

Many thanks to you all for those tips! I had kind of thought going to my piano was cheating, but your feedback shows me that's not the right attitude. @Anthony Andrulonis just recently I have begun to tune into the final chord, so your advice is perfect.

i try not to use my instrument as i know HOW to play those chords, but am interested in training my ears to recognize them, which is tougher.

Route VI. Anyone else found that it ALWAYS begins with a ii chord? I've literally not had a progression that doesn't begin with the ii for at least 40 stages now...

Yeah, and after you get to a certain point, it is the same progressions to choose from for each example.

But this one of the free exercises so I can understand why it is somewhat limited.

I'm so glad for this platform. I am finally starting to recognize intervals not only in songs I love but even in the real world. I heard a deep friar beep twice in a restaurant last week and it beeped a P5 between the 2 beeps. My ears are really getting tuned. Ha. My ears are seriously stepping up.

Add Doppler effect and you've got any Emergency Service's own sounds softly bent down into new frequencies but preserving the interval between them, another nature's show off! 🚓🚒🚑

Hello everyone here, this me - Question toothbrush, here.
I hope you have a great day, and your teeths aren't aching :)

Does Rhythmania and Rhythm parrot help with playing instruments, keyboard or recording live on time/grid in DAW?

I'm really bad on timing when I need to record knob movements, keyboard input in DAW, I'm really interested to improve in this area, will those exercises be of any help for me and what areas were intended for training in these games by developers?

I never disable anything, even when I fail for months...
