comment How Do Time Signatures Affect a Song?
Music is not just a sequence of notes played in the right order. Groups of notes are organized into beats. Some notes are played louder and harder than other notes, to emphasize the beats. Time signatures show you where the beats are. This is what makes rhythm.

comment How to determine whether a song is considered musical plagiarism?
A song is considered plagiarism only when a judge in a court of law makes a ruling that plagiarism has occurred. Up until that point it is only alleged to be plagiarizing.

comment Why is the double bass the only instrument in the violin family tuned in fourths?
"Relatively modern invention"? No way. The current E A D G tuning, in fourths, was used by the violone almost two hundred years before the invention of the cello. What we have today with the modern double-bass is a return to the original tuning of the violone, which is older than the cello, viola and violin. See my answer.

This is why, in my answer, I introduced the questioner to the concept of MIDI piano-roll display, which works much better than standard notation for helping correct the problem he describes.

He is already practicing with a metronome, is he not? This is the assumption that I made when I wrote my answer below. Using a metronome is a low-tech solution that all beginning musical instrument students should always use.

comment Term for central note in melody
I'm not sure what you mean by "revolves around". What is the key signature of this melody? Perhaps you are referring to the tonic note of the key.
