Do you start with a singing song? What/which Song(s)?
Counting beats to the change seems to be a good start but, you can't pick out a new tune without mapping out the beats.
Watching the guitar player's hand doesn't seem to work because sometimes it's very subtle.
Any hints/experience?

I still remember the first time I heard the chord change. It was life changing. I was off and running. Just want to be able to pass this on.

Yeah, just try holding on to the Key note, or Home note, through a simple melody untill it HAS to change. if you cant hear that, or you can't hear the Home note. There is no hope.

Many people can hear harmonic changes even if they don't realize it. That's my theory from never having to learn it myself. I listened to the radio when I was a kid (in the 50s) and just knew how songs went. When I picked up guitar learning to finger the chords was the hard part, not figuring out when they changed. A lot of people are like that I think, they know how music goes from listening to it.

So there are people who are plain not like that. To be truthful, few of those people, maybe none of them, will ever be very good musicians. Knowing when to change chords has to do with timing and harmonic awareness. If those things don't come naturally to you on some level you're kind of out of luck. Assuming these people still want to try and have some musical fun they'll need to learn to hear musical phrases. All tunes have phrases, which are constructed within the framework of the time signature. They should also develop a basic understanding of I, IV, V, chords, and relative minor and minor 2 chords. Most people, when shown, will recognize something familiar about those chords even if they've never played. They'll need to learn to recognize them on their own. That can be done listening first until it starts making sense. I don't think you can play music unless you first know how to hear to it.

Farmer J., do you mean as a fiddler who doesn't play a chording instrument...how does that person learn to hear where chord changes ARE, or SHOULD be? Or do you mean to make those changes on a chording instrument how does the person learn? I didn't word that too well...but hopefully you know what I'm asking.

To me...it seems learning to play guitar is the best way to learn about chords and progressions and such...just me, maybe...but guitar taught me all of that kinda stuff. I'd say if a person can't get time or motivation to learn guitar, maybe something like a uke or something like that...something where it's gonna be obvious there's gotta be changes.

Then sing a song and figure out when the chords need to be different, and where they need to be...as Brian says it's usually just I, IV, and V...so you just count...if you're in G, G is I...start the song and end the song there...the in betweens for most simple tunes would be figuring out which times you need the IV... count from G, starting with G and count to four...G, A, B, C... so C is the IV chord...count one more for the V chord, D. So the tune is built on G, if it's in G, and starts and ends on G, and then what heppens in between those starting and ending G's will in most or at least many cases be just figuring out when the C sounds best or when the D sounds best. Lots of fiddle tunes might only have a I and a V...so you'd just have G and go to D sometimes. I wish I could think of tunes that just have a I and V as an example...but my mind is all blank on this right now...hopefully somebody will think of something.

Anyway...I would hum or sing the melody with something like a uke or something like that in hand and figure out which chord changes work and sound right. It can be hard to hear it when you're busy fiddling.

Peggy, you kinda caught me. I was very cryptic about the instrument. I know many fiddlers that live in their melody side of their brain. I played guitar and banjer twenty years before fiddle. But fiddle is so intense to learn, I forgot my harmony/chord side of the brain. And I sort of learned mandolin concurrently.

Here's my idea: Find a song the student knows. (by heart) Hopefully it's a 2 or 3 chord song. With weapon in hand, have them sing and strum to the beat. Student already knows where the 4 and 5 chord reside. But essentially, "let them drive." Let them either find the right or wrong change, and hear the difference. My fear is said student may not know how to sing on pitch. That said, I don't think I ever knew how to sing on pitch until I picked up a guitar.

I appreciate all the input. Keep 'em coming please!

I'm not a credentialed teacher (though Mom is), but I'm bad to "hold forth", so here we go, though most won't get through the third line and I don't blame them...

If I was to teach up hearing chord changes, I would start with 12-bar blues--just the 3 chords. If one cannot anticipate a chord change coming from a mile away with 12-bar, then like Pete said, there's no hope, abandon ship.

Further on, country music (which I define to be any music originated from west of Zero degrees longitude). Which is a mixup of the 3 based on "genre" (a late term that I don't like, just like any late terms, because I'm afraid I've become a "codger").

I believe listening is the best way to ear train what one likes to play, cause there's always more beyond the 3 maj chords due to regional texture, like relative minor chords (VI chord) and "modal" chords (bVII). These chord progs are common in Scots-Irish Mountain music, as all y'all know!

As a man that was raised on paper notation and learned ear late--I'll have to say: Ear On!

Steve,
I believe I will start a thread in the 'non-fiddle' forum on

"How do you make $ on beef with $6 diesel and $1 calves with a drought on your hay?"

I imagine I can go to a beef forum with this question, but I don't think I would get any colorful replies like, "to hell with it, I'll just sit on the porch and play my fiddle til it rains."

Carry on, y'all

I think for most folks it just comes down to fundamental learning by ear...  listening and paying attention. 

Two parts, one is hearing when a chord change happens; the other is learning to hear to what chord. Start with just hearing when (and when not); once got when then pay attention to quality of sound, and clues to what likely chord is.

Can develop this by using familiar songs as examples; esp good recording where can hear the accompaniment changing chords.  These provide many many examples to hear how chords change. You can use songbooks to follow along... see where points out that chords change... but remember to listen. Don't focus on counting, nor really memorizing... just listen to when/how the quality of a chord changing. It does help to sit down with a chord instrument, experiment, listen to differences. 

Some will be obvious and easy, others a little more difficult, similar/related chords. and/or more nuanced but don't overly worry about it at first. Most folks develop a pretty good sense of hearing going to V chord, and IV. There is another aspect that pay attention to listening to lead up hints to a chord change.

Not sure if mean home note as the key tonic or root to the chord. Either way that doesn't always work. Sometimes there is more than one choice... and the chord doesn't necessarily have to change (some songs can play one chord for whole thing, still works). As well sometimes while might analytically seem like should change, the melodic note creates a tension to the chord... and changes in different spot or different chord.

I think singing would be imperative, so I would establish whether the student could sing, even just the key/home note of the chord, and work on that until a certain degree of skill is acquired. I would then choose one chord songs or songs with a quick/hardly noticeable V-I at the end while student finds tonic, then play the same song a key up, and student has to make adjustment for the new tonic, continue with this process until the tonic can be easily found each time. Now come the two chord songs, and they would only be I to V chord songs for the time being, and songs with simple phrasing like 'skip to my Lou'. I would explain how the phrase in that song is repeated a tone down for the chord change, I would test their skill in recognizing the change as I sang the song and strummed the chords. I would continue to practice them "hearing" the changes in this song by singing it in different keys, each time the student recognizing the changes. I would continue the same process with other two chords songs after which I would point out the interval between the tonic notes of each chord demonstrating by singing them to random chord changes of I-V only. Much the same process would continue by introducing songs with progressively more chords. Eventually the student will learn to recognize the chord changes and which chord by the interval between the tonic notes of each chord.
This process may vary greatly to accommodate each students needs, but I wouldn't teach this unless specially asked or the student has acquired a certain proficiency with their instrument. If student is having difficult changing chords I would teach chord charts and counting beats, and address any technical problems.

When I was a kid, my guitar teacher, who played with Chet Atkins and others would play chords and I would have to identify the relationships i.e. I, IV, V and later the extended chords like IV maj 7. Listening to music is how you learn chords. You need a modicum of theory knowledge to do it.

Not sure if I'm resonating with some of the other comments made so far, but aren't chord changes related to the underlying rhythm of a tune? If that's true, a chord change should be related to the rhythm of a tune and should be helpful in anticipating when they occur. Pretty sure this is true for most simple fiddle tunes. I guess there are tunes where a chord change can be subtle and work in around the rhythm. Still, being able to feel the rhythm of a tune is such and important part of fiddling it should be useful in helping to anticipate most chord changes.

I took four years of violin in elementary and middle school. All I knew about chords were they were a group of notes played simultaneously. They had nothing to do with what I was doing.  When I took up guitar, you played these chords, in this order, to this melody. Why? Just because. It wasn't until I took music theory in high school that it all started coming together.   Scales, arpeggios, chords. oh my!

Indeed, Chord theory, and the study of harmony is a deep subset of Music theory. Quite handy if one ever gets the yen for playing second or third fiddle. I could suggest buying a piano. As it can be used as a harmony "calculator."

Okay, here's the deal: you can take anybody, show them chord formations. Label the formations 1, 4, & 5, respectively. Start them out on 1. Tell them to count 8 beats, and change to the 4. Then 4 more beats and change to the 5, etc.etc. But that person, while making the correct noise, is still not making Music. Or should we keep on faking it until making it? It may be a lead/follow barrier? It may be a familiarity barrier? We'll keep grinding. . .We have plenty of time.

Steve...I think I would sing the song myself and play a chording instrument, myself...then I would instruct the student to point when there's a chord change necessary. Once they have that down, I would have them yell out V chord, IV chord, whichever when you need to change...see if they can get to the point where they can tell YOU when you should switch and which chord is right to switch to. Don't know how effective it would be, but seems maybe it would allow them more focus on the sound than if they were also busy either singing, fiddling, or trying to play an unfamiliar chording instrument.

Basic rhythm first - 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 etc, simple. Then chord 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 next chord 2 3 4 next 2 3 4 etc... If you're teaching a strummed inst, one down stroke per number/beat. Once that is solid, teach a new strum pattern and work through the chords again. Same chords until they are making what you would call music. New chords once they are comfortable.

Chords give the tune shape and sense of movement. The movement of chords does enhance the rhythm but the tune's timing does does not change if those chords are not played with the melody. I hope that makes sense.

Thanks Bob - Yes I think I see (feel?) what you mean. Music is a language of sorts but yet very different from the spoken kind. All I know is chords have a very inspiring effect on my playing. One of the amazing things I ever experienced was how mood changes when a note is sustained while only the chords change.

In the training method to 'hear chord changes' I would include the study of 'common chord progressions', and the development of the chord progression, thus acquiring the skill to predict the change of chord.

Though of course they can do a whole lot more, the basic task of steel string acoustic guitars is to supply chords to back up folk and C&W singers. The "boom-slang-boom-slang" strum of a Martin or Gibson guitar is pretty much omnipresent in folk-based American music. It is here that you learn and get comfortable with the chord progressions that back up so many of our treasured tunes. Unless you're doing jazz or classical, the progressions are pretty simple, too. In any event, once you get comfortable anticipating and strumming the chords that back up so many of the tunes in the Folk/C&W/Fiddle cannon, it'll all make sense.

And at the bottom of it all?  The One Five --  the "Do So" interval. Think of a C chord, alternating with a G chord.

Y'know it funny, in the passed I've offered advice when asked, but never have gotten into such a kettle of fish. Because I myself have never been properly trained. (at anything really)
I think, after a session today, it's a familiarity thing. A fellow my age that's never delved into music, would have little to no idea, about such things. I sympathize. If it all comes too fast, it's like drinking from a fire hydrant.
I always looked at the 1, 4, 5, thing gives me a better than 50/50 guess. But it also comes eventually with a good ear. An ear that has to develop. Like with most anything, it takes time. That nasty word, practice.
Got along quite well today, watching my left hand. Me, playing a banjer. It's seems like the easiest to view. The least subtle, as far as movements/formations.
Minors will come a ways down the road. I appreciate the input! We don't come out of the womb fully formed. But as it's happened such a long time ago, we (me) forget. But real instructors go by method and tailor to individuals. That's a special thing on it's own. Yes, indeed.

Of course most of us did it by feel, without instruction, and I grew up on the 12 bar blues, I could hear where IV and V7 was and this skill transferred easily. But, you asked for a 'training method' and if I had my time over I would follow the method I just outlined to arrive at my goal much sooner....

I've encountered people who simply cannot 'hear' anything wrong about the wrong chord, just as I've encountered people who cannot hear if a given note is higher or lower than another note ..... That's when I might fall back to, "Follow what I've written on this paper: D, D, D, D / D, D, A, A", etc.

I have noticed there are different takes on some songs. I have tried to present the most simple chord progressions to these songs ... beginner type of approach. If you see an error in these lists or have any suggestions please let me know and I will post accordingly.

That's kind of interesting, but it seems to me it would be tedious to actually learn to recognize chord changes that way. Do you apply this method to your own playing?
