Minor difference

Can you tell C major chord from c minor chord?
A lot of people seem to have problems.  See this fascinating post on “modal deafness” by Mark Liberman at Language Log.

1 Thanks for posting that! I was able to tell the difference in the examples, however I recall being perplexed by my college roommate when we took classical guitar lessons together and she could not tell the difference between certain notes in a progression. I just assumed it was a matter of experience/exposure. Perhaps not!
