comment How much can transposing a song by a half step or a whole step help a vocalist?
I accompanied a singer singing "O Holy Night" at a Christmas service. At rehearsal it was clear that the high note was just out of his range. I took it down only one-half step and it made all the difference in the world!

comment Beatles - Because: Chord progression
Unexpected like finding a Jalapeño pepper in your hot fudge sundae, but not unexpected to someone who eats chicken with Mexican chocolate mole sauce on top.

comment Why Is Just Intonation Impractical?
Wendy Carlos had a computer-based synthesis system that allowed rapid updating of the tuning tables. She wrote and recorded many pieces in just intonation. With this system she could start in C major just intonation and suddenly modulate to F major just intonation by adjusting the pitches. She could go around the circle of fifths in just intonation! The results can be heard on her 1986 release "Beauty in the Beast". (Yes, it's really a spiral of fifths; the C you end up on is not quite the C you started on.)
