You ever discovered something you didn't know you could do?

Discussion starter….

OK for me two things:

I can read music, and I didn’t know it. I always assumed I couldn’t. Then a few years ago, I started doing gigs that involved standard notation. I stared at the sheet music hopelessly but then realized I got it. Whole notes, half notes, dotted half notes, quarter, eight, sixteenths. Key signatures. EGBDF - I had it all. I’d learned it as a child in music lessons, and I didn’t realize that I never lost it.

Pitch memory: I can start singing a song, and then jump in on the guitar and piano, and I’m in key. It is a neat parlour trick, and I only learned a few years I can do it… like being double jointed.

Anyone have any cool tricks you didn’t know you could do, and then discovered you could?

I’d say no. Maybe the ability to unconsciously keep to the measure of a song when I’m coming up with melodies. But then I think most people are able to do that anyway.
