comment Bourée 1 and 2 for “fast” piece (bass trombone)?
@Someone Oh, no apology necessary -- I was just explaining why I didn't mention it in my answer. If I was confident in my ability to execute it and my private teacher was on board, I would do the Bourée. Tempo is variable, so just make sure you're on the technical side of what's acceptable.

comment Bourée 1 and 2 for “fast” piece (bass trombone)?
@Someone I did notice that the Hidas is more overtly virtuosic in nature, but that wasn't part of the question. Personally I'd find the Bach to be more impressive, though you may want to run that question by your private teacher. Also, chances are that the orchestral excerpts are chosen in part to give them the amount of "flash" they need to see.

comment What's the difference in sound between different wood grades?
@Fergus The comments I deleted were a discussion on whether or not to keep the question open; they did not make sense in the present context. To be clear, you were arguing that the question should be closed, in which case you would not get any reputation from your answer upvotes. As the question has been refocused and reopened, you should make your points in an answer where they can be upvoted, as filzilla suggested.

comment How often does each interval appear in the harmonic series (relative to the fundamental)?
@JCPedroza I edited my answer to include the most common ones. Beyond that things get kind of contrived, and the point here is that dissonant intervals don't have small whole-number ratios. I'll note though that you can "add" interval ratios together just by multiplying them. So, a major 7th might be the 5th (3/2) plus 3rd (5/4), or 15/8. Tritone could be two minor thirds (36/25) or it could be the difference between the 3rd and 7th (7/5). That last one is fairly consonant, but it's 17 cents flat compared to the 12-TET tritone.

comment What exactly constitutes a PhD in music?
@WheatWilliams I would have thought the same, but google doctoral degree music composition gives slightly more results for Ph.D on the first page.

comment How often does each interval appear in the harmonic series (relative to the fundamental)?
After doing some research on my own, I decided I could take this in a very different but equally valid direction that hadn't been covered in the other answers. Please see the edit and offer commentary! I'm also going to clean up some of the existing comments here.

For each harmonic, are you just "rounding" to the nearest 12-TET interval?

comment Different kinds of capos
Caught it -- right at 1:33 he flips off the "tooth" that was fretting the D string. So he was basically using it as a single-string and instant-cancel capo.

comment Time-aligned sound samples
Actually, for instruments with long attack (like strings), they will "play" "ahead" of the beat such that the peak attack lines up with the rhythm. You can't do this with a MIDI keyboard, but perhaps the question is about samples to be played back by a sequencer?
