<b>I recently saw a post that claims to test your ability to recognize tones of different music and gives you a grade at the end of the test.<br><br><br><br>
I thought it might be fun so I added it to my webpage if your interested.<br><br><br><br>
It claims to be scientific.<br><br><br><br>
Your input would be interesting<br><br><br><br>
Enjoy. (About 1/2 way down my homepage for the link)<br><br><a href="http://WWW.TONYSTAROLDIES.COM" target="_blank">WWW.TONYSTAROLDIES.COM</a><br><br><br><br>
Good Luck<br><br>

I took the test and wasn't terribly impressed. All it does is play a bar or two of music twice. And half the time (I tested it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/angel.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":angel:">)it simply plays up a pitch or two or inverts a few notes. So... overall, not terribly impressed.... but I suppose it could be good for someone that's not big into music <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Damn, that was cool!<br><br>
I got 94.4% correct (2 wrong), and I know exactly which ones I flubbed: those low percussive drum sounds. My ears suck in the low freq range.<br><br><br><br>
I think they could've made the test a lot more comprehensive, though. Instead of simple melodies, they should have done more polyphonic stuff, chords & maybe some point-counterpoint. But overall that was some fun stuff. Although I seriously doubt I've got "world class musical abilities" like it said. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

Good thing the test didn't require any singing, because I think I swallowed my tongue. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Can I give you some constructive criticism? Animated gifs, especially that many, are way too distracting. Get rid of 75% of them, it'll help.
