You better believe I've been asked this question a few times, almost always right after someone heard me singing. I knew I wasn't tone deaf because I can play piano and a few other instruments, and I did well in music theory back in school. Still, I took the Tone Deaf Test to make sure, and to see how difficult the test is. If you're not tone deaf, it's easy! Simple, for everyone, really -it only taste a couple of minutes, if even that.
So I'm not tone deaf. What I am is a really, really bad singer. If I ever run across a "can you carry a tune in a bucket" online test, I will try that one, too, in order to bring it to you. But I won't show the results. Take the Tone Deaf Test here. -via Geekosystem
