So, I've been very confused about what is considered absolute/perfect pitch.
People including music teachers, told me that I have it. The thing is that I've always heard that it was something very rare and only some great geniuses had it.
What I can do is... if I hear any sound I can identify the note. For example, if someone sings a random note I can tell what it is.
Another thing is that if you tell me to sing a specific note, I can sing it. I thought most musicians could do that, but I found out recently that it's not a common thing. For example in music classes, I'm the only one who can start singing a song with the right notes from the sheets without a reference. When I hear a sound, even if it's not from a music instrument (it could be a car horn or something) I relate it to the name of the musical note.
Does this mean that I have what is called absolute pitch? If not, what is it then? And does anyone here have it?
