As one of the assignments my teacher has given me, I play the maj7, min7, dom7 and minor b5 around the circle of4/5. I can do this because I know the patterns for the chords and I can find the root. I asked him if I should know the note in the chords I am playing other than the root and of course he said yes. I found Joe Hubbard's Chord Tone Sudoku as a worksheet, but even with that it seems like a lot of rote memorization. Forty eight chords by my count. I had trouble learning all the state capitals and there were 48 states back when I was trying to learn them. My current method is to sing the name of the notes as I play them, or say them if others are present, but it is not sticking. So, two questions, do you know all the notes and if yes,how did you learn them?
