comment How to learn to play 'out of phase' with yourself?
There is another cool piece by Reich call "Clapping Music", and it has this neat video that goes along with it, to kind of demonstrate a "simpler" version of this phasing thing. Thanks to my brother (Stephen) for pointing this video out to me.

@bobobobo Hahaha, that is bizarre. I've never seen this show before.

By the way, @bobobobo, your name always reminds me of the villain Mojo Jojo, from the Powerpuff Girls cartoon.

comment Starting piano - which instrument to choose?
@bobobobo I meant that the lighter keys make it easier to play, not that less keys make it easier to play. I do think, however, that a beginner will not notice the restricted range, and might be less intimidated by the smaller keyboard.

comment What are some common beginner mistakes when learning to play the piano?
This question might be a bit too broad for the format of this site. That being said, I recall one of the bad habits I had to unlearn from "teaching myself" piano was avoiding playing with my pinky fingers.

comment What left hand technique is being used to create this percussive chord transition sound?
This question has a couple of "too localized" close votes on it already. I have voted to close as "not a real question", as I think right now it's a bit too vague (as evidenced by the other comments, and the answers). If you would like a high quality answer, please consider adding more details to this post about what you're asking.

Valid point, horatio - and good answer.

comment Guitar Hum disturbances
I'm not sure we have enough information to definitively determine this is saturation (although I agree it's a possibility). Especially since the OP describes this as a "hum" - I would expect clipping or distortion if they were peaking the input.

comment Learning another instrument?
Hi Emma! I agree with user3169 and Dr Mayhem, your question could use some clarification. It would be great if you would edit your question to include the details they've asked for. Especially being more specific about what your problem with the reed was, as it sounds like that's the main issue.

comment What are the most common barriers to becoming proficient at playing an instrument?
In my opinion, this question is not a good fit for this site. Please see the FAQ entry on close reasons, specifically the "not constructive" one: "We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or specific expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion."
