Automatic evaluation of perceptual similarity is crucial for music retrieval. However, previous works mainly focused on the similarity of timbre and rhythm but not the musical pattern of a song, such as melody and chord. In this paper, we propose a new feature, chroma histogram, to summarize the musical pattern and use a transposition-invariant matching method to compare two chroma histograms. Experiment results demonstrate the efficiency of this method in measuring the similarity of musical pattern.
