Interval Ear Trainer

I'm so glad I found this tool, but how the heck do you use it? I mean, how are you supposed to know what the interval just by hearing it? I know what intervals are, is it just a matter of memorization?

It can take some time before you start to recognize a particular interval, but you'll get there if you keep listening to it.
Take some time first to listen a lot to each and every interval.
An idea is to connect every interval to a song you know.
For my part, I know the Perfect 5th as the first interval in the Star Wars theme song. etc etc.
My advice is that you start off by practising the minor and major 3rd, the 4th and the 5th, then when you've got those down you can move on to the minor and major 2nds, which will be very recognizable by then. These are IMHO the most important intervals to know, so focus on those first, and let the rest of them come later.

Thanks to Fretsource for that tool. It is a great, fun thing to have.
Would be cool if he expanded it to include intervals from notes other than C and descending intervals too. I'd buy that if he wanted to sell it on a CD or something. I really appreciate the one we've got here and use it a lot.
Anyone else have to get their "ear in" ie get better at it after the first few?
