    Ah, I'm older than I look, been out of college for a while now (29 years old)

    I majored in music for one semester then switched because theory/ear training/keyboarding are not up my alley. I played in my college's top music ensembles all four years, though. Now I just play for fun.

    In college I played high (1st) but right now I'm playing low (4th) to help flesh out the section. Plus playing low is kind of fun after not doing it for a while.

    Lol, yeah. I guess in a way it was very Anna Karenina.

    How far did you get? Personally I believe the "melody trigger" approach has been the most effective so far.

    I have never met anyone myself who developed perfect pitch as an adult, all the musicians I know that has it has had it for as long as they can remember. I love the challenge of it, and I suspect I will keep going for a few more years. I'll let you know if I ever get there!

    It's a slow process, but it's definitely going in the right direction. I have been having quite a bit of success with identifying single notes/tones, for instance I took a wineglass out of the cupboard last night, hit it with my finger and immediately identified it as a C. (checked it just to be sure, it was pretty much dead on). Elevator alarms, oven fans, ring tones etc., I'm also getting pretty good at.

    Sometimes I'm also able to determine the key of a piece by ear, or a single note will stand out in a recording or live setting. Some notes are easier to identify than others as this point. A, G, C and Bb seem to stand out more so far.

    Having said that, the ability is not consistent yet. I can't instantly define any tone/key signature whenever I hear it. It's a very subtle thing, and needs a lot of refinement. That's okay, I'm not in a hurry really. The progress I have had so far has been way better than I expected when I started this project. And realizing that the twelve notes all have their unique characteristics is a pretty cool experience.

    I have to run now, but I'll get back to you tomorrow if you have any more questions.
    You are a musician I assume?

    I don't typically use the radio at because my tastes are too obscure to be thoroughly carried. Księżyc does not stream there, for example. If you submit enough of your listening habits to the site, though, its musical neighbour feature becomes very useful as a list of likely hits even without the stream.

    I discovered Księżyc through A Polish user there had a musical profile that strongly overlapped my own, and this was a group he'd rated highly but which I hadn't yet heard.
