comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
@MonicaCellio Yes. See "The Study of Counterpoint" by Joseph Fux, born 1660. In it, he describes all species of counterpoint.

comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
Yes, I'd say that's a good way to put it. The five species of counterpoint are the building blocks composers use to compose counterpoint in general.

comment What's the difference between sixteenth century counterpoint and eighteenth century counterpoint?
In my understanding, counterpoint is counterpoint. It's what you do with it that makes the difference.

comment What chord is this from Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 “G - Db - F”?
Can you give a larger example. Knowing how the chord resolves will help explain it's function.

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
Are you sure it's a 440 fork? It is not uncommon to find one pitched at 442. And I'm curious what others have to say, but I don't think it's possible to tune a tuning fork.

I have also never heard of a color code for notes. There is however a system called "shape notes". en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shape_note

comment What is the device used to draw 5-line staff (empty) with a pencil/pen?
The only ones I've seen use chalk and are used exclusively on a chalk board. When I'm looking to draw a staff, I just print staff paper from the internet.

Are you looking for a game that will help you learn to sing, something like rock band or a karaoke machine? Or just a game with good music. Please be more specific.
