Re: the trouble with melody triggers

Chris, I'm afraid tone jam might be right. I think my ear is being "triggered" by the melody to put my head in the key, whether intentionally or not. Thus, I am then listening for the "tonic" within the eggs, rather than the chroma, regardless of the fact that the eggs are not in...

For what it's worth... A doctor friend of mine took a speed reading course at Murray College decades ago. According to him, what he got from it was the greatest gift he has ever received. I'm not sure what your reading is like Chris (I'm not you) but this guy definitely experienced a change in his l...

Well.... The premises of TRT are as follows: 1. Everyone, when subjected to silence for a period of time, will begin to experience ringing in their ears. There is neurological activity going on in the auditory nervous system, even when things are silent. that activity is just coded as silence and in...

TRT and Perfect Pitch

Chris, I've recently developed some hyperacusis and tinnitus. In trying to figure out how to cope with it, I've been reading a lot about Tinnitus Retraining Therapy. While not directly related to the acquisition of perfect pitch, what I'm reading tends to indicate that our brains are generally more ...

The end of your research?

Chris, At the end of section 17 you say: "Next, I take a shot at explaining the journey." Now that we know what perfect pitch "is" and what it "isn't" have you continued to research on how to get there? Do you have anything to follow up the research already posted on th...

Just wondering, Chris, what exactly is your problem with the DLB Relative Pitch course, and how is yours better? I don't mean to be inflammatory at all, I'd honestly like to hear what you have to say on this. Does your monstercourse involve intervals only or does it branch out into recognizing diffe...

AP Avenue?

I was just wondering, what are the reasons for turning APB into a new game altogether? Also, my "preferences" menu is grayed out in AP Avenue. I had the load and shoot set to automatic on APB which made the play a lot faster, however I don't like waiting for the chick to cross the road, lol.

Possible Improvent (chroma isolation)

So, I've been playing APB for the past two days....and I've reached the rank of Cadet 3rd class. I really like the feature of being able to select different instrument types. However, if we are truly trying to isolate Chroma, wouldn't we need the instrument sounds to vary? That way the ear can't att...

Interesting story. Since nobody else has replied yet, I'll just say that. And I think that everyone involved in the site sorta' shares the same opinion as you, or at least the same hopes. Thanks for sharing.

I think that is the idea. It is just important to know when a tone is not present, especially if it's within the context of a chord. It is necessary to have internalized the chroma of a pitch to detect its absence. That is to say...you have to be able to conceptualize (or hear if that makes more sin...
