    I have been trying to move away from tabs and rely on just my ear to figure out songs lately, and I am definitely making progress. I also spend some time trying to learn what intervals sound like. I would like to get a good book to accelerate improving my ear. Which books would you recommend for me?

    Thanks

    Not a book, however..

    Click on the tab labeled 'trainers' and it will pop up a handful(chord/interval/scale/note, ect ect) interactive training devices to practice your ear training with. I have a hard time sticking with it, but it would be hard to ask for anything more.

    *now if there was an application like this for some kind of mobile device, i'd be all over it like Oprah on a buttered croissantwich.

    I have tried remembering intervals by associating them with a song, but I am getting curious about solfege. Do you reccommend it?
