I've always wanted to play accordion. I`m afraid it`s too complicated an instrument to pick up, though, so I settled for harmonica, several degrees of complexity lower.
Cy, the C Major scale is very different from, say, the Bb Major, or E Major I assume that you`re not talking about weird stuff like the Mixolydian mode but about simple transpositions of the major scale from one key to another, right? If that`s so, I can`t see (hear) a difference between C major or B flat major or any other major. I just looked up perfect pitch on Wikipedia, and apparently it comes in different varieties: for instance some people can identify the key of a piece of music though not an isolated note. Maybe you have some variety of that.

"Rearrange them, and you've got Pachelbel`s Canon... and for that matter, at least half of classical music."
Pachabel`s Canon has 5 chords: I V vi iii IV I IV V. But I know what you`re saying. And this video only accounts for poo pop songs, but I guess that was the point, wasn`t it? Also, no accounting for a minor key or mode in this video, is there?
