Congrats, man.

I can remember the sensation when I my ear started improving fast. It was not long ago actually.

I play guitar since I was 8, but only recently I went serious about it. And somehow my ear just start improving (without any specific action towards it). So, I used to think I simply did not have this "gift" while it is actually that we build up.
