Does this mean that if you had, say a Slide whistle, and slid from a flat F to a sharp F during those 5 seconds—because you hit an in tune F at some point, you would get max points?
that is a clever idea but only deices with a quick decay time can have multiple attacks on the note. ( hitting a mallet or plucking string) and a slide whistle doesnt meet those constraints
I think everyone is missing a very important part of that rule, which is the first few words that say you can only play 1 pitch....
At what point would it not be considered one pitch? Just as an example, if you were on let’s say a string instrument like a violin, you can place your finger down on an ‘A’ and then rotate it very slightly so that it covers what is most definitely the exact cent of 440 (assuming it’s A4). It wouldn’t sound as a different pitch at all, just very fine adjustments in the intonation that would be barely noticeable to the ear but would basically be guaranteed full points. I’m not sure if I made any sense just now but it’s hard for me to describe.
