Is a beautiful day in Nashville today, low 70's sun shinning and windy as all get out.
Momma (wife) has the fancy smancy wind chimes (3) that cost around $200 each which are hanging in 3 of the 150 year old sycamore trees that are next to our back patio/form a canopy over our patio. I always thought she was wasting money and I pretty much still feel that they were a bit in excess. However, today, I learned to appreciate their value even more-so when I recognized 2 were in the key of A and are the A Pentatonic major scale. The other is in the Key of D and also of the pentatonic major variety.
I've been working on my ear training over the past 6 months, to my surprise it is starting to work as I had never really even considered that wind chimes are within a key.
I watched a show on tv one time about savants and "perfect pitch" and how some of them heard notes and identified them in different colors...how cool would that be?
I guess that you can say that Momma was not very frugal in her purchases and I am an idiot for even noticing what key the chimes are in, however it's pretty cool!
Would be interested in us maybe talking a bit about ear training. I know Ben mentioned to me before that he has "perfect pitch" and I know that I do not. Perfect pitch is when you are born with it (can identify a single note at any given time by ear) others say they have perfect pitch but they had to learn it (this is not really perfect pitch).
Look for a composition in A pentatonic with emphasis on the F# minor pentatonic scale with me and the brothers chime in a recording! Optimal tempo is 20mph with 30mph gusts.
