I am still on the lookout for a good way to exercise and expand this skill.
If I play the chords on the piano, I know what the chord is when I play it, so I miss out on “trying to figure out (or guess) what it is” followed by the feedback of finding out whether I was right or wrong.
If I hear an interesting progression in a song, it’s usually gone before I can get my hooks into identifying what/when for later study.
With ear training software, I feel flummoxed by a lack of context, though maybe that approach deserves another try.
I would be interested to know *how* others have worked on acquiring and/or strengthening this particular ability.
