None of this contradicts anything I said, sorry.

Sure, but that is both a later development, and also it's not as immediately responsive as just whacking harder on the keys.

comment Boiling/washing used guitar/bass strings - is it worthwhile?
I honestly don't know what you mean. Either the string is too long, and hence sticks out, or it doesn't.

That's the whole point. Small integer rations = harmonic sound. I don't see what is modern with that. :-) And how do you know people knew it before Pythagoras if they didn't write it down?
