I know I don't got..perfect pitch, and cant open my mouth and sing..everything in pitch, because either imma hit the wronge note, or a run comes up that is to much for my mind lol, but can i build my relative pitch to a high level to vvhich its good enough to match vvith perfect pitch. Ive been doing ear training for about, i'll say off and on a year, but recently..just start to take i on everyday for 10 mintues, my ear gotten alot better since the last year to the point i can catch notes of vvhats on the radio vvhat people sing((for some reason vvhen a person sings infront of me i can hear the song notes more clearly)), and i confirmed that the notes..right, by play it on piano or..looking up sheet music, and so on, so my ear gotten better, but its like i might sing and then i get to a part, i just cant catch it and im off pitch and then either there is a run...that not basic...and i be like..???. lol im just vvondering..if i keep doing vvhat im been doing this past 2 week ear training everyday for 10, would i be at least about to stay in key of a song...and sing, because it feels like im going somewhere but den i end up at nothing, and you know that feeling is horrible like i cant express myself smhh. But yeah that's my questions guys :D lol

Play the melody on a piano or guitar and match your voice to that.

Sing along with scales. Like anything else it is muscle memory that you have to build.

Another thing that can make things difficult in singing songs to music is that you may start singing on a note that is in harmony with music instead of starting on the melody note.

It is helpful to learn some Basic music theory.

Even though I have a rather gifted ear I believe you can train any of this stuff. I think I had a natural knack for relative pitch, then self-taught myself absolute pitch cause I was just that obsessed with music.

You just have to invest in the right resources to help you through the journey to obtaining a better ear. I don't know any specific resources I could recommend, but they exist and they are out there, I can assure you that. Just gotta be willing to give up time and money and be willing to work hard toward excellent results. For anything you're struggling at. That's how it goes. Some people are more naturally gifted, others have to train hard to master certain abilities. If you have discovered you are not in the former crew with a particular craft, then accept the fact that you will need to dive in deep and drop some cash, time, and really become obsessed about this, because you really want that fantastic ear and that's the only way for a less gifted person to obtain it in a reasonably short amount of time. Just keep that mindset and you will meet your goals.

Your mind can identify the correct pitch in others. But you have yet to link that mental picture in your mind of your body producing the correct notes. Equal a note to a color or object. Play the correct note on an instrument. Then give it a color or object name. The point is to give your mind a picture of the correct note. Then, when you sing the note, think of the picture.

It sounds crazy but singing is mental.

I pratice scales, even a few minor scales on five tone , ocatve, and octave half scales I never sing with audio, I listen to the verse or intro, find the bass notes to get the feel of the song play them, then I sing the vocal line and I play what I sing to see if its right, or it match the bass line then I find the key of the song. But the problem is I can't make out some parts of the song like I can't fully play a song by ear I can only hear bass line, and I hear vocal line but when it get to confusing notes parts hamonies and runs, and most time it get to high for me to sing because I'm a bartione bass can't sing above E4, thank you guys for Yall help, and I never throught about I might be singing a hamony note

Phill ik Wat you saying bro, I use to do singing program turn on an exercise scale and start singing all off pitch I throught I was singing the same note as being played in the scale, but I came to terms that I wasn't no where near the notes I was ocatve lower on starting on the wronge note to. So I play, it sing it when I get to the top note I make sure its in key and I record to hear if I'm going flat in middle but usually I know when I'm flat or not now, I've been taking music serious (getting real vocal training collage classical voice)) just only for two years ik I need a lot more years of training to get to that level of a muscial ear

Anyone can learn relative pitch. keep doing what you're doing and it will come slowly. Take it note by note. Play a note on something, really feel it, hear it and imagine you singing it, then sing it. The reason you can't sing back a quick riff is the same reason a baby can't string a coherent sentence together, It's too much for your brain to process. Start with one at a time and I promise you it will slowly get better. Slow the riff down, work it out note by note and gradually take it up to speed.

I wrote a blog about perfect pitch by the way.... might be helpful in your understanding http://singersvoice.wordpress.com/2012/07/12/what-is-perfect-pitch/
