It is usually said that if someone doesnt develop perfect pitch by the age of 10 they will never develop it.

However, i never had any musical training until recently.

I have noticed that i am able to sing the notes c e and b pretty close to their actual pitch
and can identify them by ear almost 100% of the time without reference.

Do u think it is possible for me to develop perfect pitch given my ability to identify those 3 notes..?

I guess what im asking is given that information do u believe it is possible for me to have all 12 notes down cold with a lot of practice?

However when i sing the notes the tend to be sharp or flat sometimes by a whole half step and the note im hearing in my head is a different than what im singing

Absolute pitch is overrated. What you really need is great relative pitch for critical listening

(and a new amp)

...modes and scales are still useless.

Perfect pitch is dumb.
People with PP get irked when a note is just slightly out of tune, and it ruins music for them. I don't want that shit, and you shouldn't either.
#24
Perfect Pitch is a nice trait for talent shows.
Absolute Pitch can help you get gigs, help impress the ladies.

Guess which I favour.

you don't need perfect pitch
it's all about that relative shit yeh

You can't. Work on relative pitch. Having god like relative pitch is the same as having perfect pitch except you have to hear one note as reference. That's it. Just one.

There was a story on NPR a while back, I think it was on Tech Nation I think, and the scientist said that the percentage of children in China with perfect pitch is much higher than for children in Western countries. This is because the Chinese language (most of China speaks Mandarin), is a pitch based language. And children at an early age memorize the pitches at the same time they learn the language.
So many of the children in China have perfect pitch.

Other children learning pitch based languages like Cantonese, and I think he said Vietnamese also is a pitch based language if I remember correctly, also have perfect pitch at a much higher rate than in the West.

Strangely enough, about 60% of the world's languages are tonal. The western world just happens to be dominated by the some of the 40% that aren't.

Well, it has upsides and downsides. The upsides are good, and the downsides can give you a headache until you learn to deal with them. But if you learn to deal with them and also learn good relative pitch, it's good.

Relative pitch is important for any musician, even if you have AP.

the threads where the pit discusses music in terms of playing, technique etc are always worthwhile to read.
