comment What is distinctive about the Hammond B3 organ?
I like your answer very much. It better explains the point I tried to make in the comment I posted above. Other organs could compete, but Hammond is a "standard" already loved by many musicians.

comment What is distinctive about the Hammond B3 organ?
Yes, and I believe there are some other famous additive synthesizers (even thought I can't think of any now). The leslie speaker isn't exclusive to it too, but the fact is: how close to these characteristics can you get before it's a mere clone? For instance, there are several apps and VST plugins that were crafted exclusively to emulate this sound and feel, but in spite of that I saw (and heard) an actual Hammond Organ on Roger Waters stage last sunday. It was a great concert BTW :)

revised Why does music sound bad when played backwards?
Extended the answer because it seemed to be implying only piano like sounds will be weird. Also added sound samples

comment Why does music sound bad when played backwards?
Yes indeed, this seems to be the case many times. In fact the brain uses the clues given by the attack and the different volumes of the sound and its harmonics to perceive musical information. I know there's some papers analysing this somewhere but I'm not finding them now.

Is this a purely theoretical question or you have an instrument in mind? It's hard to answer it, but I'll post my try at it shortly.

comment How to effectively of use a lower tuned guitar
Yeah I know about tuning up into the notes and that should not be the problem. In fact sometimes I observed it going out of tune to a higher pitch and I suppose that may be due to the flabbiness you talk about.

comment How to effectively of use a lower tuned guitar
Interesting, but this begs the question: seeing that not all strings in this tuning are downtuned, 1 and 3 remain the same and 2 is increased half-step, should I still get 12's?
