Using my laptop speaker, I got .825. The test told me that’s better than 75% of the population. Tried it again with headphones. Whittled my score down to .43125, which puts me in the 94th percentile. So apparently I’m hanging in there. I once read that anyone over 50 should never question the hearing of a younger person. Being well over that age, it’s nice to know that I’m not yet pitch deaf.

Liked this test enough that I posted the link on my website.

1.2 but with speakers. But it's actually not that hard to tune a guitar by ear, if you listen for the beats resonating in the body...

1.2, kind of sad, considering I'm only 22... But well, not very surprising, I've never been great at tuning by ear.
