Surely though, even 'perfect' pitch is relative, since if the scale were
constructed diferently the relevant notes would change their absolute
frequency. It's just that a person with perfect pitch is able to
compare the perceived note to a remembered absolute, whereas with
relative pitch a person needs to be 'tuned' first.
