Really really good tone deaf stuff here lately! I mean these ones:
I have sent them to my friends who think theyre tonedeaf!
Does anybody else have friends like that? “Oh you’re so musical I wish I was too but I’m tonedeaf” etc.
I have known a couple people that have the same problem. I actually feel embarrassed for them if they decide to sing in public at karaoke or something. I would never just come out and tell them how off they were though. I would be much more likely to encourage them and tell them that they did a good job. I will check out the links you posted and maybe that will give me a better idea on how to help these people out. Thanks!
I never really put much thought into being tone deaf or not… I hope I am not! lol
I will have to take the test. I don’t sing or play (as of right now) so I just listen to enjoy music. I don’t listen to too much mainstream things either. Most of the music I listen to doesn’t even have lyrics. I do love a good voice that can sing but I prefer being able to hear the music by itself. Maybe I am just picky. haha
@kristin_r Exactly!! I would never want to be rude to my friends but I can send them the link and hint in a friendly way! I don’t think any are really tone deaf but they do need to learn to sing in tune.
@britanica If you listen to a lot of music that is a good thing for your ears
A lot of my friends are like that but they haven’t learned to pay attention when they sing so they still sing out of tune! I feel like saying “JUST LISTEN TO YOURSELF!” but I know they would take it badly.
A great app for getting your ears around triads. Like Relative Pitch, it makes ear training fun....
