It's listening for the changes, the relative pitch between notes remains because of the nature of frequency and scales The point is more to work out how many notes and the intervals, subtle intonations, flourishes and details that might be lost at full pelt.

The real geniuses I've encountered are simply interested, always learning. See failure as a positive (unlike most who see it as a negative), an opportunity. So they dive in and fail faster, learn quicker. They just seem more gifted, but you didn't see the many hours and risks that got them there.
