In this video a question is asked by a viewer. What is perfect pitch and what is relative pitch? Perfect pitch is something that is developed at a young age and comes easily. When a note or tone is made, the person listening can tell what specific note is being played. Relative pitch is being able to hear the difference from one note to the next note. The next step is how to develop your ear for relative pitch. In a 'G' major scale, listen to the intervals between each note. Certain common songs can be associated with each interval to help you remember. After you work the major scale, move on to the minor scale.
