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.

So then you probably mean to include musical acoustics, ear physiology, and cognitive science in the question?

Regarding "figure out the missing [notes/chords]": Do a search on "ear training" in this site and you will find questions and answers that should help you.

comment Are the any great open questions in music theory?
Music theory isn't a science but rather a descriptive language formed in order to enable analysis and communication of common musical structures. I don't think there can be open questions in such; If there is a musical construct yet lacking a theory description you can just make up a name (and possibly a notation) for it and it will no konger be lacking.

What about exercises the thumb? (Unless you play with your palm against the back of the neck.)

How about "playing" for an answer? ;-)

comment What is the difference between a mode and a scale?
@Xzoechord: The C Aeolian mode would use the same set of notes as the Eb major key! The A Aeolian mode would use the same set of notes as the C major scale and key. See also music.stackexchange.com/questions/6885/…

Changed wording to what I guess is the correct intent and hopefully better wording.

Major remake mainly with regards to swung eighths/triplet feel.

comment Right hand in top stave?
@ColonelPanic: I believe you should play the highlighted chord(s) with your right hand just as Babu answers! (Otherwise there would have been some textual indication that you should play it with your left hand.)

Added note that this doesn't answer OP's actual question.

comment How long would it take to learn to tune a piano?
I don't think tuning by a third is a good idea if you are aiming for an equal tempered tuning since I guess you're likely/risking to tune a just third (of frequency ratio 5/4) of 386 cents which is quite far off from an equal tempered third of 400 cents! Pure fifths (3/2 or 702 cents vs 700 cents of ET) might not be optimal either, especially if you stack them and add the error (ending up with the Pythagorean comma). (Further I believe the octaves are generally stretched a bit in the high and low registers of modernly well tuned pianos. But that might be beyond OP's needs or intents.)

comment Right hand in top stave?
:-) I interprated "the upper stave" as meaning the song stave. I now see "the other question" and for this I totally agree with Babu that the notated chords go in the right hand. The different stem directions are there to indicate the melody as a separate voice from the accompaniment.
