comment Simulating speaker distortion with Doppler shift
From the point you are standing (usually) and the speed of sound, I would say it's not audible (I'm sure someone will claim that s/he can hear it) Note that Doppler shift happens with uniformly dec/increasing distance. Otherwise it's just garbled. It's the same with a fixed tweeter/subwoofer combo and shaking your head.

comment Is closed hi-hat the same as foot hi-hat
@AsianSquirrel That's pretty hard to confuse on a question about closed/open hihats... ;)

comment When should falsetto be used for a male voice?
@David I think you misunderstood my example. I don't claim that there are two different types of vocal folds. While the mechanism is simplified a lot the vibrational effect is the same. It doesn't matter from which side it is actuated. It is the moving part that matters and can be superimposed to model the same behavior.

comment Maximize practice time on electronic drum kit
Tony Royster Jr. extensively plays electronic Rolands and see if he looses anything. There is nothing unfortunate about electronic drumset playing. It's just different. I would suggest playing intensively for a week on the electronic drums and then rent a rehearsal place with acoustic ones to see where it feels awkward. Other than that, it's a matter of a few days to adapt to one or the other. There will be no technique loss.

comment Sticks moving in my hands (weak grip?)
@JoaoVictor Another classic is Ted Reed's syncopation book. The typical use of it is to fix 3 limbs playing a certain pattern and read off the syncopation exercise with the fourth limb. It's mindboggling at times :) I remember being very angry to this book but immensely helpful.

comment Sticks moving in my hands (weak grip?)
@JoaoVictor Oh, sorry. This one has kind of a biblical value among drummers. It's not exactly a tricks/chops book. But if you persevere, most of the chops you loved before start to look trivial after a few months and you realize what those subtle drummers are actually doing. Obviously there is a matter of taste involved. But I nevertheless recommend it incorporating in your practices.

comment Sticks moving in my hands (weak grip?)
@JoaoVictor Suppose you are holding with index and thumb only. Then you perform a hit movement by pushing your thumb forward and your index finger slides below the thumb. Do it without holding a stick, you'll see what I mean. If that is performed incorrectly the thumb pushes the stick forward sliding over the index finger. So in the next stroke you will be holding the stick at a slightly further point to the butt of the stick. Is that a little clearer?

comment Picking using forearms vs Picking using wrist for palm muting
Ask the people who told you that where they heard about it. That's not even good advice. Let the master speak youtube.com/watch?v=zY85LH4yvo4 and do some picking demo youtube.com/watch?v=RlePTeNihp4

comment Oasis - Supersonic Harmonic analysis (What modes are played, explaining modulations and pivots function as roman analysis)
There is no supersonic harmonic analysis for music. You can't hear supersonic that's one and harmonic analysis means something completely different. I think what you mean is harmony analysis. And that's also quite snobbish way of transcribing the chords.
