Here is a nine second sound sample of three pairs of piano notes recorded on my M&H BB.

Just identify the notes.

Click on the word "Here" if you are interested. I am not.

Too bad. You might learn something.

Ah, this is a note NAMING type of test. Young Helen Keller knew water intimately. She knew its feel, its texture, its smell, and its taste. But she could not spell W-A-T-E-R, or recognize if it was spelled into her hand (this being the name part). Does that mean she could not recognize water, because she did not have a name association?
So no - I'm not trying this - because my pitch recognition is separate from names.

This is not a test. No judgement needs to be made. It has nothing to do with perfect pitch. The thread title is simply a hook because so many people either love or hate discussing 'perfect pitch'.

I asked a simple question. I played three pairs of notes on the piano. What were they?

That was creating confusion and miscommunication, then. In a forum we only have words, and if the words don't mean what they say, what do we have left?
Bottom line is that you still want us to give the names of those notes. Maybe I'l turn on my piano later, duplicate them, and give you the names.

Yes I do want you to give me the names of the six notes I played. I did not ask you to guess. Everyone can listen to the sound sample, go to the piano and find out what notes I played. This is not rocket science.

The sound sample was recorded within 5 minutes of being tuned, so is about as good as it gets.

Ah I wouldn't have even known there were two notes at a time.
