comment How do you compose using the chromatic scale?
I was being poetic, but I think the metaphor holds. The avante guard piece Stria is built using a similar construction as the Western 12TET system, but uses phi (the Golden Ratio) in place of the 2/1 ratio which defines the octave in the Western system. In Western functional harmony, the octave provides the basis for parallel lines. And since non-Euclidean geometry began with Riemann discarding the "parallel postulate" from Euclid, I think it apt to call Stria's construction a non-Euclidean musical structure. ... Good q by the way. It took me several days to remember what I meant.

@hpaulj There is a strong community opinion against list/poll type questions. But I think this is a good question on the right side of the line. Let the burden fall on the answerers to keep this from becoming a "list".

comment Is it OK to pick over the neck pickup?
@supercat That's very interesting. Your D isn't too loose? For my own studies, I've been trying for super-speed, so I went for big high-tension strings so they snap back into place faster. A loose D might interfere with that, even though it might make smoother melodies as un unwound. But, I'm also using tapewound, so even the wound ones are pretty "unwound"ish.
