"Perfect pitch - the ability to name any note one hears - has up to now been considered the ideal window upon the musical world. People with only relative pitch - the ability to finish the tune in roughly the right key if someone has started them off on the piano - have in an unspoken way been considered as in some way handicapped, and been accorded a nonvoting presence in the general run of musical things. BUT THEY ARE THE VAST MAJORITY. Relative pitch is what makes a tune one tune and not another."
