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 How to make songs with chords that don't belong in a scale?
@KeithS: I believe you have the inversion nomenclature mixed up (or "inverted" if you will ;-) First inversion of a G7 chord for example is (from the bottom) B-D-F-G, second inversion is D-F-G-B, and third inversion is F-G-B-D. :-)

comment Piano--Sight Read vs Memorising
@Kat: Can you clarify? What kind of answer are you looking for? Scientific research? Implications on practicing? Pros and cons? Other? (My experience is similar - that there is a spectrum of performers abilities of sight reading and memorization and/or playing by ear - so I can relate, but I don't feel that, at least, I can write a SE Q&A relevant answer from that.)

Are you asking for special techniques for playing octaves with small hands? Are you asking for something not answered here: music.stackexchange.com/questions/8013/… ?

comment Can one install new sample libraries in a digital piano?
If the keyboard has MIDI out (and I guess most have), then you can connect an external MIDI sound module, or a pc with appropriate software (through an audio interface with MIDI connectors), and control the sounds of those with your keyboard.

comment Understanding V/ii♭9 Chord
Yes you are correct; minor ninth is the correct name! My error. (A diminished ninth I suppose would sound equivalent to an octave. :-)

comment Understanding V/ii♭9 Chord
I believe your interpretation of the chord function is incorrect. However, a note regarding voicing of a b9 chord: you'd likely voice a b9 chord by (1) omitting the tonic [when a bass takes care of it], (2) voicing the b9 almost an octave below the tonic, or (3) have the b9 and the tonic note voiced next to each other (as long as they are not on top of your voicing). The diminished ninth voicing you suggest with the b9 an octave above the tonic is arguably the last dissonance still generally avoided in jazz voicing. :-)
