+1 You beat me to it. :-) (There's also the General MIDI Level 2)

comment What keys are associated to what drums when connecting keyboard to Roland electronic drum via MIDI?
I don't have a TD-9K or other electronic drum set, but I find it hard to believe that Roland would have set up the triggering of sounds in another way than according to the General MIDI. Further I believe it's the sound module rather than the pads that produce the sounds. Each pad will likely just send the MIDI information corresponding to the appropriate key as listed above. I.e. you shouldn't need the pads when connecting a keyboard to the sound module. (But you probably understood that. :-)

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

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/…

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.)

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.

comment Why is the last semiquaver outside the last triplet of the measure?
@Chiron: Do as Bavi_H says, or you can practice clapping, tapping and playing four against three which you need to know in order to play the last beat exactly as written. Or you could just wing it, but loose out on a good exercise. :-)
