comment Two consecutive mdi note-on of the same pitch misbehaving
oh yeah. hmmm. so the situation is you have a chord, say C,E,G playing for a bar with an arpeggio across at say the 2nd quarter note on each qnote for the same C,E,G, right? If you think about how you'ld play that live, the arpeggio notes would need to pick up the remaining duration of the overlapped chord. So I guess if you want short overlapped notes, you'll need 2 channels for each guitar string if you don't want to bother with how it'd be played live. One channel for the string and another channel for overlaps on the same string.

comment Why do we use so complicated notation?
well, i wasn't saying that his notation was GOOD for melody, just that it could only possibly show melody. Not chords, etc.

comment Co-writing with others
Hey, don't try to wrap US up in an argument between you and your girlfriend. But, ok, I'm gonna side with her. You can swap new chords in and it'll sound like the same song. Lyrics and melody are usually what drive any pop song. She wins. And not just cuz she's a girl.

comment Why is the basis of Jazz harmony tetrads (7th chords)?
you mean "in addition to", not "instead of". And I'm pretty sure you know why - it just sounds better, eh?

comment Rests & Their Usefulness in Drums
with standard notation, you can only sort of tell when the note starts by looking at it's spacing. But when things get busy, the spacing can change wildly. This rubber banding of time makes rests necessary. Without the rubber banding, standard notation would take up a lot more space (as piano roll notation does). But if things are always busy anyway, like they usually are with drums, piano roll notation can be a lot better. (my opinion)

comment How to enhance a basic drum kit without buying
No answer here. But I just hit guitarcenter recently. A good Yamaha set with all the drums,cyms is $1000. And the snare has multiple zones. That's what -I'm- doin':)
