comment Why does the orchestra tune to the oboe?
@EJP: Yes, but you can say that about any instrument, not just the oboe.

comment Why does the orchestra tune to the oboe?
An oboe (and, for that matter, any other instrument) only produces a perfect sine wave if you're referring to the fundamental frequency; in other words, if you're willing to dispense with all of the harmonics that the instrument produces. Of course, if you do that, it will no longer sound like an oboe.

comment Why do drummers put (duct) tape on their drums?
They have rings that you can just set inside the snare rim that achieve similar results.

comment Etiquette of Quitting a Band
It's worth noting that any kind of resignation, if it's important enough to do right, is important enough to do in person, or at the very least over the phone. I wouldn't rely on any sort of electronic text medium, especially instagram, teh facebookz, or any other social network; it's not the right tool.

comment How do jazz players communicate while playing?
Soloists can also have a predetermined musical phrase they can play that signals the end of the solo to the rest of the band.
