comment Able to recall music in its correct key, but don't have perfect pitch — what is it called?
@horatio I've heard somewhere that people who speak pitched languages (e.g. Chinese) are a lot more likely to have perfect pitch. I wonder if for those studies they surveyed people with musical training only, or if they came up with some other criteria that can apply to anyone that speaks the languages fluently?

@Babu Thanks, that's informative. It explains why I can easily guess a few pitches every time (A, Bb, C, D, E) but have to think more carefully about everything else -- they're probably the keys that I play most often.

comment Able to recall music in its correct key, but don't have perfect pitch — what is it called?
@Matthew I can only accurately recall A440 if I picture my violin tuning routine as a 4-note "melody" (A, AE, AD, DG). The pitch alone doesn't come to me. Maybe most people are capable of applying perfect pitch only in certain contexts, and for me (as well as reinierpost's choir), it's only with melodies. That, or my shoddy relative pitch is throwing me off -- and there are definitely some aspects of relative pitch that I really need to work on.

@Matthew Ah, yeah, I wasn't too sure what tags to use. Thanks for the edit.
