What's a 'good ear'?

What do we mean by a 'good ear'?

The general test of good aural perception is that you can repeat a note when you hear it, even if it takes a few goes.  This is essential when we aim to create a satisfying harmony with other singers.

Actually, most people can do this with a bit of practice.  T
rue tone-deafness is quite rare!
