Major 3rd

For the major 3rd interval, the note we are varying is E, and compared to our C reference note, there is a 4 fret distance between them.

When I hear an E in the ear training exercise, I often think of Three Blind Mice or Mary had a Little Lamb (the children's tune, not the blues song)

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