Sounds familiar... Absolute pitch can work against you.
As a musicion you deal with notes in three domains:
A. As written on the score
B. As they have to be played (fingering)
C. As they sound (pitch)
People without absolute pitch will mentally link A and B,
and don't bother about the pitch. Which makes it easy for
them to read scores for transposing instruments, as the
whole point of such notation is to keep the relation A-B
When you have absolute pitch, you link all three domains
and reading a score for a transposing instrument becomes
harder. I've always found it difficult, even with lots
