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.

comment The relationship between music theory and physical phenomena
essentially, any piece of metal can have its first partials tuned. Whether it is interesting or not to tune it to produce something else as a major or minor chord is probably debatable. If you have something else as a fifth for the 2nd partial you'll get somthing really weird. Ditto for the 5th partial, for which you want a major of minor third. Outside of this you have instruments with a continuous spectrum, in which by definition all chords can be heard :-) Also added info in the answer.
