From Sunday:

The melody doesn't fit correctly in the transcription of #8. I'll revise it if I decide to put it in my book.
ET: I'm doing much better on the tests. I need to keep working on them, because the more time I spend with them, the better I get.
Today I spent time with the test with and without the guitar. I started with the guitar and then I found that I didn't need it. It was getting in the way. I knew the intervals much faster. I kept this up for a while and then I reached diminishing returns. I'm still surprised that I work like that. I need some time to warm up and then I can hear just about anything, and then after a certain point, everything sounds the same or worse (a minor 3rd sounded bigger than an octave to me today). It's like I lose all my bearings and don't know which way is up. I have to work on that. Today was the first time I glimpsed at the abiltity to "mentally hum" the notes to myself without actually humming with my voice. I think this may be helpful for times wehn I get a little confused.
ET Triads: I did so-so on the triads. For some reason I'm hearing augmented triads as tighter than diminished. Woe is me.
I'll have to work on those again tomorrow.
