comment Can I play `A scale` song on a `C scale` harmonica?
@MichaelCurtis I've seen it done in youtube videos. But I've never been able to do it myself. I'd probably bend down to get those notes, to be honest.

@jjmusicnotes I think I found an orphaned account of yours. I think you can use the 'contact' link below and ask for them to merge the accounts.

comment How is it that 12 eighth notes fit in a measure labeled as common time?
Watch out for this in Debussy and Brahms, too.

comment Should I sing do re mi when playing piano?
You're welcome. Sometimes it may be more useful to consider the current chord as the root instead of the key. If you always count from the lowest note first, this gives you figured bass notation.

comment Is there a piece of music that “inaugurated” Beethoven's middle period, and thus the Romantic era?
Please take no offense that I changed acceptance. BTW didn't you have more rep than that?

comment What does “cut. S. D.” Mean in sheet music?
My guess is it's a typo of 'cut D.S.' which would mean "skip the repeat" if someone wanted the piece to be shorter.

comment Should I sing do re mi when playing piano?
I don't do it, but it doesn't sound like a problem. Unless, by asking here, you're really really worried about it. I'd recommend you try singing the note names instead, C D E F... and then try switching back and forth. If your brain is wanting to do more work, then give it more work to do. Next try singing the note's function in the scale: root two third fourth fifth .. (I say "two" instead of "second" so it's one syllable.) Make it work for you!

You might find this answer of mine useful. It discusses calculating fretstops from a figured-bass representation applied to the scale.

comment How to avoid unwanted scratching/squeaking/hissing noise from the fretting hand when playing hi-gain electric guitar?
I don't remember having that problem. But I've been using tapewound for a while now. Some flats have a coating or plating that may wear off.
