 0 answersPost by Professor Ryan on May 1, 2014Hi Devin, Thanks for your question. I always tell beginning students to count 5 half steps from the bottom note of a major third. It is easier for them than not including the bottom note and then counting up 4 notes to the major third. I did mention that in the lesson.Thanks again, L.
