Holy Cow!! Whoa! It would take me at least five minutes to decipher those chords ... NOT Razz

Pretty amazing child. His biggest problem might be the first time he plays or sings with other less gifted people. It might be torturous for his ears.

Keep on pickin'!
Glenn

Savant? I love Dylan Beato. Singing and naming tone clusters!

Wow! What a gift. It’ll be interesting to see him in 10 to 20 years to see what he gravitates to..

Just out of curiosity, are there any apps , tuner apps, or any app game that tests your ability to “name that note”?
Watching that kid really makes me want to improve my ear.

Answer to my own question—I found a little game at tonedear.com
And an app called ‘perfect pitch “

Rick has a few videos where he discusses perfect pitch. He says most people can actually acquire it if they are started out very young (infants/toddlers). If you're already old - Forget It!

Some feel that perfect pitch isn't a blessing, it's a curse.
Everything sounds out of tune. Whoa!

I guess I’m not after perfect pitch (that might be a curse), but a modicum of extra ear skill to help identify keys and chords while jamming. The guys that I sit in with at the local watering hole don’t always clue me in on the key—I do know guitar well enough that if I can see their fret hand, I can usually figure it out. I’d love to *hear* the chord and key.
“Ahh, that chord is Ab7#5, carry on boys!”
They’d blow beer out their noses. Laughing

Definitely a curse. If you’ve ever been in a band with a person who has “perfect” anything - pitch, rhythm, hair... - you know what a pain they are.

Not to downplay ear-training. Without it, you are pretty much lost in a band.

A good sense of relative pitch is a necessity, but perfect pitch is a curse if you have to work at a different one.
Anyway, what is "perfect"? A=440 is more or less an international standard now, but it's varied a lot over the centuries and I don't see how anyone can be born with it. So even if the ability to recognise absolute pitch is genetic, the calibration must take place after birth.
