Perfect Eleventh Intervals

A perfect eleventh interval is the distance from any note to a note seventeen half-steps away either ascending or descending. Another definition is a perfect octave plus a perfect fourth. It is a consonant interval.

Playing perfect elevenths on the guitar requires using the pick to strike the low note and the second finger to strike the high note. Strike the low note with a downward motion and strike the high note with an upward motion, as if you are trying to pinch the strings.

Be sure your guitar is in tune before playing the following examples.
