@topomorto Looks like a typical strat trem.

Exactly! Thanks for pointing out the typo -- and another one. My fingers wanted to count by twos!

comment How should tuba valve springs of different size be reassembled?
Are they just uncompressed to different lengths? Or does it appear that they were manufactured in different sizes? It could be that the valves you use most often have compressed those springs according to wear. I've never seen this, but my other guess would be that the springs would be ordered shortest to longest for valves 2-1-3 -- allowing for more spring tension to be used on valves that have a longer amount of tubing. I've had problems with valve instruments where valves would stick only when there was airflow, and I believe a stronger spring matched with the longer airways would help.

comment Voice over programming language
This is not a question about music theory or practice so it will be closed. (But if you have a Mac, open up AppleScript editor and type say "some text here" and you should be on your way.)

comment Circle of fourths in Jazz
@NeilMeyer There are countless chord progressions used in "standards"; the 4ths progressions are just a primary element. It's not to say that every chord change is a 4th away from a previous one. You can look in any Real Book for hundreds of examples.

comment Accompanying notes to higher key
Why not transpose the whole song down until it's within the singer's range?

comment How does one read very loud or very soft dynamic markings (e.g. ffff, ppp)?
Steven Bryant's great. I played in the second (or third) performance of his Concerto for Wind Ensemble!

comment What key could the progression Cm - G - Dm - Am be in?
@Mr.Boy Go ahead and link to the recording! Honestly I don't think this is truly answerable until we hear the melody -- context accounts for quite a bit.

comment BPM marking doesn't check out or am I just reading it wrong?
I dropped into OP's video at about 16:30 and she's talking about the passing tones that Schiff does here, as being written as triplets in a second version that Bach produced of the piece. But then she goes to say that the performance practice of those triplets would be shifted to fit a duple rhythm -- exactly the opposite of what Schiff does.

comment Is it acceptable to change tempo in the middle of a song or is this a bad idea?
+1 -- I still think Freebird's gradual tempo change is what made it so popular.

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.

comment Mozart K545, what is the correct fingering for the left-hand runs starting measure 50?
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).
