Any tips for ear training of perfect 4 & 5, and Major 6 & 7th interval training. I am having hard time in identifying these intervals in major scale.. I tried singing the interval...but having no luck.....

Pick a tune with these intervals as the opening notes and associate the title with the interval.
Suggestions are.

4th Tonight from west side story
5th Last post
6th My way
7th There's a place for us West side story again.

It will be more relevant to you, if you pick something you like..

Nice one Colin, though to be clear There's a Place for Us is a flattened 7th - I assume that's what the OP wanted! If a major 7th is needed that's a bit trickier. I tend to think 'Bali Hai' (South Pacific) without the octave note.

Or "Over the Rainbow" (.same thing).
Anyone got any good ones for descending sevenths?

Mine are:

Perfect 4th Here Comes the Bride
Perfect 5th Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Major 6th My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean
Major 7th The ones already mentioned, but the open dissonance is hard to miss.

My theory is that most people have the good sense not to start a song with a major 7th. Those lacking good sense write songs that are so bad, no one has never heard of them.
