FYI: Using the relative pitch with pathways method doesn't necessarily discount the use of intervallic relationships. Just figure them out this way. The interval between Re and Do (an octave up) is a minor seventh, between Mi and Do is minor 6th, Fa and Ti augmented fourth and so on. I think it's a more logical way than trying to interject a completely different song such as "Here Comes the Bride" to hear what a fourth is. Just sing Do to Fa or Re to sol or mi to la, sol to do, la to re or ti to me... they're all Perfect 4ths within the key.
