comment Why do we use so complicated notation?
Your example is of guitar fingering notation. What does this have to do with piano?

comment Lateral alignment of pedalboard to keyboards
Of course, not all pedalboards have the same number of pedals; they cover different note ranges. They also have different physical layouts (radial curved, radial flat, straight). I imagine that these factors have to be taken into account.

comment Should my first bass guitar be expensive?
The Gibson guitar company has always been known for making mid-level to high-end guitars, not beginner's guitars. Many years ago they had a sales campaign with the slogan "Buy your second instrument first" meaning they wanted beginners to understand the advantage of buying a professional instrument to learn on rather than starting with an inferior beginner's instrument because having a professional instrument would be more satisfying. Well, it's just a marketing ploy and nothing more, but I thought it was interesting.

comment Clarinet losing air
Perhaps your clarinet has developed a leak in its joints, and your clarinet requires service by a qualified repair person.
