Major 7th

For the major 7th interval, the note we are varying is B, and compared to our C reference note, there is an 11 fret distance between them.

Unfortunately, I also don't have a good popular example for this, but this note is the just a fret below our return to a high C note. Hearing a B move up one fret to a C in the key of C is also very common in classical and popular music, so to test if the note is a B, I just see if it resolves to C in a way that I remember.

Listen to the example below to see how this interval sounds in the context of our ear-training exercise.
