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':)

comment Composing For Drums as a Non-drummer
That's a pretty open ended question. If you want a real answer you'll probably have to narrow it down. If you wanna do it right, find a drum teacher, buy a set, and start down the path. Otherwise, just stick with the "if it sounds good, it is good" rule.

comment Is there a color code for notes?
I'm not sure he's thought that out too well... On his lower diagram, F is orange. I'm not sure how he justifies starting the hue somewhere other than C=hue of 0?

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
@NReilingh I can't figure out how to make that chat thing work to save my life (and I'm a computer programmer!) You can go ahead and chop out my comments if you don't mind.

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
@Tim scale spelling is also used to place notes on the staff. Spelling a scale is not too difficult. The trick comes when there are notes outside the scale used. There are 5 notes outside the major scale that must be placed on the staff if used. Standard notation specifies which line/space and whether to #/b/X/bb/% the note.

comment Note naming convention while creating scales
@Tim I don't know what you mean by "the major scale is the starting point for notes"... Are you familiar with the naming of intervals? In C minor, m6 and m7 would be Ab and Bb while M6 and M7 would be A and B. But they'd be spelled out in sheet music with m6 and m7 at A and B with keysig flatting them both and M6 and M7 would be naturalled
