comment What do we call music which is not played on the beat?
There are many different specific terms for this because there are many different specific types of "not playing on the beat". If you can give us some concrete examples we can explain further.

comment What is Voice Leading?
There might be a couple of mistakes in my chord identification in my Bach example. I was trying to provide a quick illustration, not something rigorous.

comment What's a “guide” in the studio recording process?
Think of it as a "rough draft" track that is refined and completed by recording new tracks to replace it.

I wonder if they make a catalytic converter as well.

"Muffler attachment". Cool. I think there are about as many different names for this contraption as there were manufacturers who built them into their pianos.

The proper name for this pedal, historically, is the "moderator". In Europe it is sometimes called the "celeste" pedal.

comment How do I find a good reverb pedal for a huge, soul-filling sound?
If your soul is really in need of filling, I don't think any electronic device is going to do the job.

comment guitar scales: where to start
If you are just starting out, you do not know enough to figure out what you need to do, and everything you find online will only add to your confusion. Save yourself all this trouble and pay for some lessons with a guitar teacher at your local music store. Your teacher will demonstrate things to you, answer your questions, and set you on the right path.
