The theme appears to be saxophonish.  The language that appeared suddenly like a rash when the Anglo-saxons invaded Britannia, and whom, according to scant history, Arthur bravely fought off.

I am not aware that Arthur ever visited the orient.

I'd like to think that because of the instrument - professional pianists probably can sing better in tune than those who don't. They may not have a great voice, but their tuning is probably pretty good.

Although, I have perfect pitch so I'm biased.    ;D

Really? First of all you have not heard them sing. And secondly, not everyone with perfect pitch can sing. Sometimes they do not have the physical skill to produce the right sounds.

Yeah, you have to explain this more.  Pianists have a couple things working against them.  They don't have to use their ears to listening for tuning (/can't adjust the pitch), so it's not something they're focusing on.  And the piano itself, even when tuned, is equal temperament, so pianists aren't hearing things as in tune as they can be.

I've got my own ears/experience as an example on the crappy side (although I've worked to improve that).  I also remember meeting a pro pianist who couldn't really tell flat or sharpness between two pitches.  That guy had perfect pitch so he knew the notes but he didn't know which was x-cents higher or lower or which instrument needed to adjust. 

Vocalists and esp. string players though... Look out. 


It depends who the person is that we're comparing a pianist to also.  If you take a pianist with basic ear training vs. someone who's never sung, the pianist would win out most likely I would think.  The other person has never used their voice or their ears much.  There would be the except of the person who just hears or sings better though.


I never considered a piano that helpful for tuning.  Even for ear training it's just giving you the pitches.  It's limiting the musician that way.  Actually using the voice/ears or a string with the ears, definitely pushes the issue/forces the issue of having to adjust that pitch.  I've thought something electronic might work, but haven't run across something that's as easy as a string or the voice to slide along to adjust pitch.

Trombonists too... They tend to have good minute tuning abilities since they can very easily do that kind of adjusting.  I suppose lower pitched instruments in general would have good basic interval hopping tuning ability since they would get reamed more by the conductor for doing something like moving a fifth or fourth without being very in tune.  They can throw the rest of the ensemble off.

It's ok you don't speak lyrebird. It is also a bit saddening for those who think human perfect pitch is such a powerful tool when a bird with a brain much smaller kicks your ass out of the stadium.

I wonder why you always have to tell people if you watched the video or not, like its very important to let people know ahah :P

A Lyre bird just imitates - it doesn't understand. Maybe that's why our brains are so much bigger.

The fact that it has almost 4 million views is a sad reality that people will watch absolutely any old sh*t!!!

Did you hear that the Russians are planning to separate their internet from the rest of the world? It's a great idea, because they can then make it as nice and kind as they want. But since Russians love cats, there won't be any less cat videos I think ;)
