comment Why do blues musicians perform sitting?
I'd agree with the first part, but a country musician ought to know how to cut a length of twine.

comment What are common analytic techniques for identifying phrases in music?
I think your example would be more compelling if you add a second one with phrasing marks added, then readers will naturally look to the text in between to see how it is done.

comment How can I improve my classical guitar vibrato technique
Can you mention which book or edition the piece is from? "Romanza" could be anything! ... oh wait "sections where there are arpeggios on open strings with melody played on the first string" -- ok. I know what it is. Carry on.

comment Is there a standard musical/poetic form for the interaction between the protaganist and chorus in Ancient Greek tragedy?
The rhythms might be inferable based on the Greek text and a knowledge of meter in Greek poetry of the time. But it's also possible that certain passages were decorated with neumes which indicate musical inflections. Very eager to read answers to this.

comment Strength / speed exercises for rasgueado
When you shake down the contents to get a clean tear (so it doesn't spill all over the counter), do this: pinch a corner with the left hand and do a rasgueado on the sugar packet with the right hand. One good one and the packet is ready to tear. ... Differently-sized packets of stuff will have different recoil allowing you to practice different tempos. ... I work at Starbucks and easily get bored. :)
