Like Monsieur Jourdain in Molière’s Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme who didn’t realise he had been talking prose all his life, most of you have performed faultless major and minor seventh leaps (± 10 or 11) without thinking. Yet if asked to sing a such a leap, how many would get it right? Here are 3 very well known songs that contain them.
You can practice these by looping the MOVES inside the curly brackets on your horn, always remembering to sing the note in your head before going for it. Both links have a +2 linksum, so you go up a whole tone at each loop. This means you will only practice the leap in six different houses, unless you figure out a way to slip up or down a halfstep and do it six more times.
