It just takes time... In the past 6 months i've quadrupled my nearness to "Perfect Pitch"
(With that said, i still suck and can't distinguish between a minor 2nd and a major 3rd)
Well, I have Relative Pitch, but I just cannot understand how you can hear the difference between a perfect A, or a note that slightly sharp/flat.
I mean, I can hear something being out of tune, but which note is right, and which is wrong?
And when you have perfect pitch, doesn't it drive you mad when you walk around, and you hear all the sounds of every day life, and you can identify the pitch of everything, as well as something being slightly "off"???
I would probably go nuts!
Indeed perfect pitch is much a curse as it is a blessing.
My grandmother (who sadly passed away a few months ago) had perfect pitch and she could not stand it when she heard music that was slightly off.
This made her schooldays in a choir a living nightmare (choirs tend to be bad for improving your pitch as everyone is usualls slightly off 1 or 2 degrees) as people would often be slightly off, and while the others tended to adjust to that frequency, she just could not, she couldn't force herself to sing out of tune.
I'd quite like to try that perfect pitch training course, so if anyone here has used it I'd quite like to hear their stories.
