Don't worry, they'll tell you.
if you throw them and they land in the bullseye
Throw them against the wall and see if they stick!
My mother has it. Play any note on the piano and she can immediately tell you what it is without looking and without
first hearing a reference tone. I have great relative pitch-- once I have a reference tone I can pick out any of the 12.
My perfect pitch is imperfect-- if I sing an E in my head when I haven't touched a guitar or heard any music yet,
and then pluck the low E on a guitar, usually I'm either right on the money or within a half step. So not quite there....but close.
It's a fun thing to try yourself. Wake up in the morning, take your best guess at a low E by singing it, then pluck the low E on
a guitar and see if you nailed it.
So, the same way you find out if someone is into keto or cross-fit?
Might be of interest.. or not, what do I know.
I was just going to throw out cross-fit and vegan, but not one but two people beat me to it...
They can throw a banjo in a dumpster without hitting the sides.
Perfect pitch is throwing an acordian in a dumpster and hitting a banjo.
You made me laugh out loud when I read this. Absolutely true!! I can’t stop laughing.
WHAT?? Again I can’t stop laughing.
My son has it. He’ll visit and tell me which strings are out of tune.
I only have good relative pitch.
I know when something is out of tune, but I need a device (tuner) to help me fix it.
Once I have a reference E I can hear all six notes very clearly in my head and tune my guitar really accurately without a tuner so I guess that’s excellent relative pitch...
they tell you about having perfect pitch every 5-10 minutes
i only ever find that out if i'm eating with someone.
I have perfect pitch but only on the recognition side. I can always tell when I'm singing out of tune. That's the difference between professionals and people like me who should confine their vocalizations to home or if out, around the fire pit.
Not my experience...
I've worked with a young keyboard player for about 3 years... I never knew he had perfect pitch until one of the other members told me he did. He NEVER talks about it unless he is asked about it.
Once I learned he had it I would throw him a bone every now and then... just play some whacky chord on the guitar. Within moments he answers back with the exact structure on the keyboard... with a big smile on his face. He's got full recognition and recall.
One thing he can't do is use the transpose button on the keyboard.... that messes with his mind! Guess what I do every two or three gigs
Same way you tell if someone is a vegan!
