comment Example of a pop tune (or a list of pop tunes) that has vocal harmonization that does not move in parallel motion
This is a list question; it is not objectively answerable. The best questions on this site indicate a musical problem that needs a solution. If this question can be expanded to include the larger problem you are trying to solve, please make an edit and then flag it to be reviewed for reopening.

comment Can anyone interpret every single part of this staff for me? Guess its the quickest way to learn
@Tim That's overcomplicating things for this level. In any case this question is still OT.

There are lots of existing questions on notation already on this site, and Wikipedia has an incredibly thorough set of articles about notation. The only real answer to this question would be a recording of someone playing this line, and that's not going to be useful to you or anyone else. Please narrow your question to a specific problem you are having.

comment Metronome markings vs. tempo markings (BPM vs. words)
@AmarDuplantier I don't know the software, but I'm not sure what you mean either. Does the text vary based on the BPM that you set?

comment Metronome markings vs. tempo markings (BPM vs. words)
I don't think that's part of Guitarpro's code, at least not this example -- it's probably just text provided by whoever created the Guitarpro file.

Hello. Sorry, but equipment recommendation questions are off-topic on this site.

comment Is it possible to programmatically generate Parson's code from a sound file?
@RolandBouman I would have said that of the three file types you mentioned, only the WAV is a sound file. MusicXML and MIDI don't contain waveform data, i.e. sound. For the purposes of this question, as long as the file is indeed a sound file, (Mp3, aac, aiff, etc.) the encoding is irrelevant.

comment Can anyone achieve absolute pitch?
I'd suggest the reason for prodigious rarity is that not a lot of people are willing to put in the work! And it's worth noting that the people you mention as being truly anomalous both attained a high level of skill and caused an artistic paradigm shift. In his most influential years, many trumpeters could outplay Miles, but that's not what he was known for. :-) I know many jazz and classical musicians who became what they are because they put in the work in high school and college, regardless of PP possession. (My comment on that was in reference to seeing AP acquisition as an exception.)

comment Melody for haiku poem?
Agreed; this applies to an entire class of musical text-setting, so I don't believe the "song identification" off-topic criteria applies.

comment How does a flutist maintain a grip on the flute when the stops are open?
@jjmusicnotes The right pinky isn't the only finger with a "resting state" that depresses the keys. The left hand first finger and thumb both rest on keys that close tone holes on the instrument, and this, with the addition of the heel of the 1st finger, is enough to grasp the instrument (though not enough to counterbalance the lip plate). If one is not playing, you can also just close some of the other keys on either hand to get a grip--this is enough to hold the instrument securely with either hand alone.
