Songfire: The Scientific Approach To Playing Songs By Ear

A recent discovery by Dr. Valorie Salimpoor and her colleagues at the Montreal Neurological Institute sent shockwaves throughout the scientific community around the world.

It’s a fact: Listening to music actually causes our brains to release the neurotransmitter dopamine. The same chemical that’s responsible for the intense pleasure we experience during sex, or riding a roller coaster, gambling or eating a food that’s absolutely delicious. Dopamine controls our brain’s reward and pleasure centers. And it helps regulate muscle movement (extremely important for guitarists) and emotions. But more importantly, this dopamine surge inside the brain is what motivates you to take action to achieve the goal or learning a new song.

 Using brain imaging, Dr. Salimpoor observed that dopamine is produced inside our brain at the exact time we experience intense pleasure while listening to music.

These findings shocked doctors around the world because it showed for the first time that music can affect our brain in ways that were previously thought impossible.

Why This Is Important For Guitar Players

Two, apply the memory-strategy of chunking to organize the chords of a song into easy-to-remember groupings.

Three, focus on primary chords used in 95% of songs, and ignore the rest.
