LOL... apparently I can't, but I suspected as much. Too much loud music during my misspent youth Wink.
I listenend to four samples; three wrongs and one lucky guess Laughing
Interestingly enough, my guess was always with the majority though. The differences were minuscule anyway. It was always like 51% guessed right and 49% wrong (or the other way around).

Woah, even I couldn't tell it in the first moment...
The differences really are quite small.
Perhaps the best way to spot the differences is to listen to the music with really big speaker boxes.

This is probably the most important thing. If you are listening to the samples on the cheap dinky computer speakers it will be tough to tell any difference between the clips if at all. If you play the music on really nice speakers you should be able to tell the difference.

These days I have some "really nice speakers"... didn't make a difference. Wink
