First of all, the game should have had the rating "advanced" :)

1) So since this game is advanced I encourage you or I would recommend using a musical instrument or even an app on the phone like a virtual piano, don't fret and don't feel guilt about it, over time you will be able to drop this aid (promised)

2) use your instrument to detect the lowest note you hear (the bass)

3) observe the name of the given chord, play the chord for yourself if needed and observe its structure.

4) determine which degree of the chord does the bass represents

5) over time when it becomes easier to hear and separate the bass note, try to detect the next stage's bass by comparing it to the previous bass you heard, eventually that would enable you to forego the use of a musical instrument. But there's no rush.

6) this game requires you to sweat, decide on how much time you're willing to invest in it and then stick to the training religiously it doesn't matter if you finish a level or not but stick to the workout on a dedicated DAILY religious like routine

7) please report back on how do you do

Yes this makes perfect sense. I think I will first get further in chord indentification before trying this game! Thank you

@Lauren LovesCats, I just realised why you were neaturally attracted to this particular game, something to do with a cute white kitty right? 😀

Great advice @yooval mann and hopefully my little kitty face gave away how I feel

@Amit Fortus had once told me not to be fooled by her cuteness there is a reason the white cutie is looking straight at us, the idea is that she is kinda assessing our progress 😁 since then I really try hard to impress her 😁

Hi! Just had the same problem for a while until I figured out you should try to sing the heard notes. That way, you'll find the intervals and the inversion as : Root = 3+3 ; 1st = 3+4 ; 2nd = 4+3.
Not an easy task though, it is also one of the hardest for me at the moment!
