Default Re: Pinkie Finger Down for Quick C?

Certainly it is possible to detect the gross pitch of very short notes. Gracenotes that aren't what I expect stand out a mile. However, the Western ear is very good at classifying notes into scale degrees, so I suspect it would take some degree of training to be able to pinpoint intonation issues.

The other point that occurs to me is that an open C could easily be played too quickly. Many short Cs have a dynamic role and need a certain "width" to achieve that effect.
