comment Should my air be cold when singing?
To the control of the diaphragm point... I'm sure we agree that we have conscious control over breathing in and out, yes? Is the lung a muscle?

comment Should my air be cold when singing?
@jjmusicnotes I read your answer first and decided it did not sufficiently answer the question. You did not talk about the soft palate, and in particular how the hot air and cold air metaphors apply to the physiology of singing. You also only explained the mechanics of proper diaphragmatic breathing, whereas my aim was to address why this is an issue for vocal technique in the first place.

comment What numbers (on my tuner) to tune my guitar to
My advice would be to use an online guitar tuner to generate the pitches you need to aim for -- then you can match the sound before fine-tuning with your electronic tuner.

comment What are some useful and effective exercises for training absolute pitch?
@Tim - That definition of perfect pitch is not common usage; dictionary definitions suggest that they are literally interchangeable.

comment What are the greek modes, and how do they differ from modern modes?
-3: Any professional musician needs to know about justly tuned 3rds, 5ths, and 7ths, and entire cultures of music are based around non-equal-tempered scales -- to say nothing of the present-day microtonal composers... heck, I've taken an entire college course about those.

comment What is the best online piano tutor?
Shopping recommendation questions are considered off-topic here, due to their limited nature and tendency for obsolescence (of the answers).

comment cause effect relationship between emotions and a scale
The question as it is written currently is just too broad and doesn't seem to reflect much preliminary research. If you could expand on what you would expect, what some alternatives would be, and have a specific and objectively-answerable question at the end, this might be reopened.

This question does not appear to be about music practice, performance, composition, technique, theory, or history within the scope defined in the help center.

comment Why aren't intervals zero-indexed?
Just a quick addendum I've thought of since writing this: Since nearly all western music theory is learned with a keyboard (or at least with one close by), there is a strong STRONG link between counting on one's fingers and playing the first five notes of a scale. I'd bet that's where a good portion of this really comes from.
