comment Fifths of #9 chords
1 / b7 / 3 / 5 / b13 / #9 / #11 or 1 / b13 / b7 / 3 / 5 / #9 / #11. You want to be careful with the minor 9ths intervals, but having major 7ths provide interesting tensions.

comment How can I learn to play vibraphone like Gary Burton?
I'm still there, still working, still playing. I'll definitely check this out (probably not the immediate next session...) Thanks for the pointer.

comment In jazz, what is a guide tone?
sorry to downvote but, I'm pretty sure this is wrong. All definitions I've seen of guide tones refer to the 3rd and 7th of the chords in the grid. It can be other chord notes, depending on the context, but saying it is "usually a non-chord tone" is wrong.

comment Yamaha vs Casio digital piano - is there an objective comparison?
totally agree with "feel" being the most important criteria. And you need to get to compare that feel with a real piano keyboard.
