28/30 both tests. I find it funny, I don`t play any instruments and have never taken a music class. I`m scoring as if I have played before assuming this test has a good correlation with high scores to musicians.

i scored 28 out of 30, but the damn cat was next to me and started to meow. I probably could have gotten them all. I`ve been a singer all my life and can catch a key out of note. Hate that damn cat

29. No musical history at all. I`m not so sure all of these instrument players are really being helped out by their instruments that much... it`s mostly natural, methinks. :/ I`t just the high abilities that lead you into instrument playing, most likely.

-28/30 eight years of piano has finally paid off!-

Yes. All of those years...all of the people you stepped on to get to this point. The countless hours playing the piano until your figertips were raw. Everything you worked for has finally come and you have grasped the grail at the end of your journey.

i got 25/30, but i thought that it meant that "slightly different" meant just barely out of tune until i heard the first few wrong notes.

TIP!!!

just listen, and if the second one sounds wierd, then guess different.

27/30. looking only at the results here i would say that ones gender and age has nothing to do with how tone deaf you are. its more musical experience and luck with genetics. why couldnt they have recorded a real instrument, like a violin or something? that sound is suicide inducing.

30/30--that was fun, although were they using MIDI probably to play the melody? The color and tone of the sound was highly annoying. I remember having to take a test exactly like that in elementary school, too, except the teacher played the melodies on the piano.

I`m not sure if playing music would help you on this test. I mean, it`s possible that it helps you learn to better discriminate....or it`s possible that having better discrimination skills helps you play music.

I got them all right, 30/30, I just thought it was obvious, there`d always be one note completely wrong and not sounding correct in the tune.

Not sure why a Uni from Newcastle wants to know distance from London in info, they`re about 4 hours from London, even further than me!
