comment Percussion notes in the vocals
Sometimes you'll see the notes at different positions in the staff, indicating approximate pitches or the general inflection of the speaking voice. All of the spoken lines in Gershwin's opera "Porgy and Bess" are notated this way.

comment Can a scale contain both a sharp and a flat note?
A general rule: a scale has the letters in order, with none repeated. If you use G - A - Bb - C - D - Eb - Gb - G you have to keep putting a flat or natural in front of the G. Also, you can't have a key signature with both G natural and G flat in it.

comment is there a modulation in boogie-woogie?
I don't think so, because you don't get the sense that you want to rest on F or G. Using an arrow -> to indicate that a chord "pushes" toward another one and a comma to indicate a restful chord, the blues is heard as C, F -> C, G -> C or C, F -> C, F -> G -> C. Tonicization would be C, D7 -> G, G7 -> C. Modulation: C -> F -> G7 -> C, F -> G7 -> C, G -> A7 -> D. (That's a "truck driver's gear change"; see www.gearchange.org.)

comment Is there any real-world difference between time signatures such as 4/4 and 8/8?
In the 1940's, piano Boogie-Woogie was also called "8 To The Bar", because the pulse was eight very rapid beats, not 4 or 2. All of the beats but the first were equal in force.
