comment Where can I find jazz piano scales to practice?
This question is at least related, in particular the part about "The Real Book" volumes (the copies I have do not offer scales, but I don't think deducing them from the tons of nice songs they offer should be a problem). I'm not commenting about the "The Jazz Piano Book" because I don't know it.

comment How to play a song without making mistakes?
I fully agree with that. And yes, every performer on any instrument will make a mistake some day; if you're good enough, you'll fix it by making it part of another musical phrase. If you can't, get over it, move on, what's done is done, nobody cares anymore. Whatever you do, don't interrupt your performance.

comment Are tools to help improve finger dexterity, strength and speed really useful?
Well, they indeed sell this as a fitness device aimed at increasing wrist and forearm strength, but I noticed that I could last longer when playing demanding bass lines (e.g. boogie). Dumbbells target higher zones if I'm not mistaken, although it depends on how you use them. The main difference with dumbbells I think is that I feel no strain after using a powerball, even the next day.

Are you looking for something earlier than what Wikipedia describes?

comment Comprehensive theory book
@Rebecca Chernoff: I read the links, but I still fail to see how my question is inappropriate. Could you be more specific about how it should be corrected, or whether it should just be removed? Benoit: I don't think this could move to meta, because meta is supposed to be about the website.
