comment Preparing for my first jazz gig
To tack on one more thing to everything else that's been said: spend every waking moment of the next 45 days LISTENING to as much classic jazz as you can get your hands on. Immerse yourself in the stylistic vocabulary and you will be far better off than you would be otherwise.

comment Why do harmonics played on guitar sound lower as you move to higher frets while fretted notes sound higher?
The 9th fret node is the same harmonic as the 4th fret node. Each successive harmonic divides the string up into a smaller division, so all but the first harmonic (12th fret) occur more than once.

Your harmonics would also "match" the fretted notes for any other harmonics found on the bridge-side of the 12th fret. That is, if you had a theoretical fretboard that extended all the way to the bridge (with an infinite number of infinitely small frets in between) the harmonic nodes you found on that part of the fretboard would match the notes being played.

Your fretboard shortens the string to the length of fret->bridge. Your harmonic "shortens" the string to the length of node->[bridge or nut, whichever is closer].

comment What happened to the orchestral scores of Johann Strauss?
@SomeDudeOnTheInterwebs I think I was misunderstood -- I am saying the question itself has more to do with history and musicology, about which I am not qualified to answer. I only made the point about IMSLP because OP mentioned that in his thought process.

@SomeDudeOnTheInterwebs I would have thought that was obvious.

Schirmer seems to indicate your suggested fingering.

This would be better if you could include an image of the excerpt, and what fingerings you've tried.

Indent by four spaces (like a code block).

comment How can you find the key of a song by ear?
You are correct! But any more should be contained in the longer answer that hopefully someone will provide.

Standard notation (which he sells) does include a key signature, and it looks like you've found an accurate version (two sharps). So, all you've got to do is figure out if he's playing in a major or minor mode. Have a guess?

The easy way: buy the transcription from him. :-) The hard way: take courses in music theory and ear training and learn functional harmony. I do like this question, and I'd like to see some answers that approach my second option. There is a similar question here, but that's written from the perspective of a composer, so I do think this one has value on its own.
