How much ear training is required to identify chords and their progressions, without perfect pitch and reading any scores?
he has never seen the score for any song that he's reviewing, but I can't verify this. I know that he could hoodwink us by covertly studying the score, before appearing in these YouTube videos.
he doesn't have absolute pitch. I suspect he does, but I want to ask this question for those who lack absolute pitch.
Here are some examples from different Youtube videos featuring him.
1:27 B minor is a rare key for Kpop, so nice.
13:43 B flat major 7 to E major, without transition. The tritone, guys.
14:00 Lil flat 6.
How a/typical are such identifications of chord progressions? Can all competent B.Mus. graduates accomplish this? If not, how much ear or musical education is required?
