Why do I have the "musical ear" and what is it all about?

Wow that was cool. I went outside and opened the garage door. And I hummed the pitch came in and the first note i played was b. and of course it was it hahaha..well its c on my piano since i still haven't tuned it yet..for some reason someone tuned it a half step higher then it should be. i have no clue why.

thats not perfect pitch.

perfect pitch would be if you heard the note, and instantly recognised it as b.

it sounds as though you remembered the note, then replicated it on the piano.

all humans could do this, with the exception of a few completely tone deaf indiviuals.

the only difference between you and a complete novice in this is that you would be more likely to play the right note first try, and this is just experience.

Yup yup.. I don't have perfect pitch.. I don't think I even have relative pitch.

But I can still do what you wrote up there ;D After a few attempts

Alright how could you just listen a note and know it? I mean I could probably get middle c, but yeah.

Yeah, that's perfect pitch.. Not many people have it.

Most people have relative pitch.. Which is like, if someone tells you what a C is and they play you something 2 notes higher, then you know it's an E..

But I don't even think I have that :P
