TO ALL MY MUSICAL FRIENDS

I like to try to figure out songs by ear, but I am stumped by Three Dog Night's "Joy to the World"

Can anyone by any chance tell me what the first seven notes, corresponing to "jeremiah was a bullfrog" might be?

He's right. And each of those was sung as close to 440-A as possible (to clarify whether you're going up or down).

Thanks, Gary! I should have known you'd know!

PS, how many days to Beethoven's birthday?

I'm not sure there was as much A 440-ing back then as now.

It's amazing how out of tune a lot of the hits from the 50s and 60s were, and I don't mean just because 440 wasn't in the picture. They were out of tune with each other. They didn't have the technology to adjust pitch within digital recordings as they do now. It's an amazing thing to watch in the studio!
