    Perfect Pitch Update - October 10, 2019 - I have already amassed 164 chord voicings. Closing in on 200. I began with only a couple of few ones around late February 2019. People on the internet (not this forum), especially those Perfect Pitch Nazis, scoffed at the idea of a non-absolute adult having consistent success with Perfect Pitch. They were saying along the lines that it will not last and those who claim that an adult have success with Perfect Pitch are liars. Well, he he he, 6 months later in October 2019, I am still going strong. With the help of my jazz piano teacher, she has dumped a truckload of voicings in my notebook, most of them I haven’t used yet for Perfect Pitch. Here’s a couple of videos as evidence that I am being truthful in my progress. And I am publishing my success with Perfect Pitch to the world.

    Relative Pitch Update - October 14, 2019 - I got another 3 stars for Meludia Melody. For this app, I am always pushing myself to go beyond my current limits and get even more better. I have always been an advocate for self-improvement especially in music and playing by ear. The only problem is that people around me and the psychiatric people who monitor have this idea that I'm a person with permanent disability. The pros of this title around me is that I get free money from the Canadian government, because they think I am too disabled to be involved with employment, which I use the money to buy my rig, studio equipment, and accessories XD. The cons is that I am treated as a liability and not competent, but this is like my chip on my shoulder. From my guitar practice to everything else, with small accomplishments day by day, I am hoping that I am proving people wrong that even though people think I am disabled, I believe in myself as a high caliber musician and a prolific composer.

    Relative Pitch Update - October 15, 2019 - Got another 3 stars for Meludia Melody. But I am not satisfied with that. Hopefully next time I push myself to an even higher score. I am currently getting 62k. I'll push myself this time to get 65-66k.

    And what tasks will be assigned to those born with perfect pitch?

    Imagine that. In that hell - you have 1 000 000 years to practice.. then they(the demons) make you go and do your first performance and you fail because of stage fright.

    Relative Pitch Update - October 19, 2019 - I officially completed all 150 levels of the Advanced Module of Meludia Melody today. I will begin practicing with the Expert Module tomorrow. But not publishing my practice with Expert Levels yet. Like what I did with the Advanced Levels, I skimmed through it and completed the module and I ended up establishing some high scores to beat. My only problem with this app is that I find the interface of the Intermediate, Advance, and Expert a bit glaring to the eyes. Watch this video and see if you agree that this is a bit glaring to the eyes.

    Relative Pitch Update - October 22, 2019 - I've been doing this form of ear training for more than a year now. I started out plucking out the chords by ear the songs for the church I go to. Now I am doing any style/genre of music. There's still more to come of this.

    Perfect Pitch Update - November 18, 2019 - Here's something I didn't show yet with my Perfect Pitch...naming single notes!!! My perfect Pitch is weird, I excel at naming chord voicings in their absolute name, but suck at single notes. But finally got a breakthrough here. As for the chords, I am sitting at 194 chord voicings, poised to reach 200, which is my goal for this year.

    Perfect Pitch Update - November 24, 2019 - I reached my 2019 goal of mastering 200 individual chord voicings by Absolute Name and it's not even Christmas yet! This is a testament to the success I have with Perfect Pitch this year that I didn't have in years past.

    Their favourite musicians are on stage, beckoning to come join them and bask in adulation from an audience consisting of all people they've had tiffs with in the past. Then they turn around to pick a guitar, but only find one of those australian bwooorp bwaaarf tubes.

    On the age of perfect pitch development, I don't think it is generally true that it only happens when kids are babies. For instance, in Japan, the Yamaha music program starts at age 4. The curriculum involves fixed do solfege and playing pieces on keyboards and they claim a high rate of perfect pitch development by the age of 5 or 6.

    They also claim that this window closes at around the age of 6 but there are instances of people developing pp even at ages older than that.

    I do think that it is almost impossible to develop as an adult.

    Whenever I think back of the awesome scene from American Dad where Roger says "nooo!" to Francine, I hear the pitch. And when singing it and checking, its very close to 220. Tried quite a few times.
    .... but here's the weird part. Roger doesn't sing it at 440. But I do when recalling it. Because it should be "A".
