comment chord of C in four-part, close harmony
Yes, that is what a the close position is, but in a four part harmony, the bass is exempt from the closest harmonizing note rule. If there are three voices in closed position, they will always be within one octave.

A curved windway is when the windway is curved. The middle of the windway is raised above the two ends.

You are correct about the b minor. Piano is not my forte (no pun intended :P), though.

comment Curved v. straight windway
Ehh? I don't follow. A curved and a straight windway have the same total instrument length. The arms have to reach the same length on both.

comment What is a simple way to determine the notes in a scale?
Are you talking about finding the notes of a scale, or finding the accidental signs in a key signature?

comment Maximize practice time on electronic drum kit
I know drummers who practice on acoustics and perform on electrics. They both use the same technique. The only difference is some electrics aren't as responsive as an acoustic.

comment How the time signature affects how to play a melody
"an accent is an emphasis placed on a particular note, either as a result of its context or specifically indicated by an accent mark". Context being the meter. Every time signature has conventional downbeats. E.g.: 3/4, **1** 2 3; 4/4, **1** 2 *3* 4;

comment How the time signature affects how to play a melody
For example, if I play three bars of music in 4/4 and the same music spread over four bars of 3/4, I will play the two phrases quite differently even though the notes are the same.
