I play the double bass, electric bass, most brass instruments - with a preference for the low - and some other instruments, as well as sing (choir, á capella and solo). I know a fair bit of music theory and arranging, as well as some musical acoustics. I have a huge crush on musical instruments in general. My main focus is jazz and related genres, but I find myself in other contexts now and then.

comment Instruments that challenge your ear
Playing all chromatic notes (by bending) on a diatonic harmonica sure fits the question criteria IMO.

comment Why some musicians insist on naming notes using odd numbers?
Embarrassingly I reallize I didn't read the explanation you wrote for Csus11. I don't think I've ever seen that notation for what I would have written as C9sus4 (or possibly Gm7/C depending on context and intent) and thus assumed a C11 was intended. (On the other hand, as you know, the third is often omitted when voicing a C11.) Sorry to bother you. :-)

+1. I would have written C11 without the 'sus' since the 11 is an extension and not a suspended note.

comment Is there a highest note representable on sheet music without using an octave higher notation?
A bit off track but for completeness I'd just like to add that the 15ma notation can be used when 8va isn't enough.

comment Is it okay to have number of notes in a bar that doesn't conform with the time signature?
+1 Perhaps also add the possible anacrusis complementary final "bar" (as discussed under Bob's answer) as an additional case where you legitimately may find a mismatching number of beats to the time signature.

comment What are the differences between tone, note and pitch?
"Note" can also refer to notation, right? E.g. "Hey trombones; the third note in bar 15 should be emphasized!".
