comment Music created specifically for aural training
"Music is written to mystify the listener..." I hazard to guess that not every composer has this in mind.

comment What is a measure?
Hello KillaKem, I see you are an EE Student. Consider a measure as a segment of a time domain where time is expressed in the x axis and the y represents a pitch field. Not far from looking at an O'scope and identifing a horizontal division as one measure.

comment Can a passage resolve a problem of not being in sync in band?
What do you mean by "passage"? Do you mean wait until you can get on beat again? or Play some 'passing' notes? or something else?

comment the fingering intended by the composer
It would also be helpful to name the piece, and the measure (if there is one) you are referring to as this would eliminate guess work and possible confusion by those who wish to answer your good question.

comment the fingering intended by the composer
This is one of many unconventional yet fascinating aspects of this composer, consider "his first three gnossiennes... without time signatures and bar lines (often referred to as "absolute time") and traditional tempo markings."

comment Is it possible to differentiate Major scale and Minor scale by ear?
An interesting exercise might be to listen to Blues, where the scale changes from major to minor and in between often.

comment Is there a formula/theory for writing country licks/riffs?
I have to disagree with you Wheat, I think it has to have a train, someone in jail, and a gun, but the rest sounds right like your woman cheating on you.

comment X or Y guitarist doesn't know music theory - how true is this statement?
Thank you for kind the endorsement, I must say there are many good responses here. One of the key points I omitted that others included: music theory facilitates communication with a language that has a wide audience.

comment Pentatonic scale chords
If you can, please be more specific to which pentatonic scale you are interested in applying your question. As you can see on this wiki there are numerous pentatonic scales: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentatonic_scale

My apologies if I appear to have stolen some of this content, but I honestly did not read your post until I was done with my rant below. All the best.
