comment What is this common chord pattern, if that's the right term?
To answer this, it is important to know the definition for "arpeggiated" (reference for others who don't know what it is).

comment What's the point of keys other than C and Am?
The original key that the composers use is one thing. Another thing is that you can transpose any finished piece to whichever key you want to better fit your own needs. See the answers below for more on this.

comment What's the point of keys other than C and Am?
In a wind orchestra, it is common to tune in Bb, as it is common that all the instrument groups there are tuned in Bb except flute, sax, walthorn (and oboe and fagott(bassoon), but those are less common in amateur wind orchestras).

comment Help me to find a way not to bar A-shape guitar chords with my ring finger
"It sure does have some potential but looks so wierd :D" - If it works, you can ignore the fact that it looks weird. The important is how it sounds!

comment Playing Sax and Clarinet
From what I have learned, the fingerings are more similar between sax and flute, than it is to clarinet.

comment I need help understanding a complex (or maybe compound) time signature
@jjmusicnotes: You are aware that I see the first 4 beats as not the first measure in the pattern? If you count from the beginning, I see it as 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 , where 1 2 3 | 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 4 is repeated after that.

If you make the soundcloud loop track "public", it will show directly here in the question body. See how to do it here.

@DrMayhem: Yes, but the answers here are more relevant to guitar, and might not fit as answers to the duplicate question. So the duplicate questions has relevant answers to this one, but not the other way around...

comment I need help choosing between learning guitar and piano
As for the guitar reading notes: For classical guitar it is more common to learn notes. For other guitar playing, it is most common to just read chords by name. For solo riffs, it is quite common to read tabulature, or just play by ear.

You could also say that the first 4 beats is the start of the pattern, so that you have 1 2 3 4 | 1 2 3 | 1 2 3 4 as the repeating pattern, but I feel that the musical phrase starts most naturally with the 3/4 measure.

Well said. I had more time on my hands when I was studying than now when I have family with small kids.

comment What brass band instruments can a cornet player feasibly cover on short notice?
Regarding bass clef, the transposing is fairly simple for Eb instrument, as the "dots" will be in the same spot as if it was written transposed in G clef. The only thing you need to do is to remove 3 flats (for F, C and G) or add sharp for those if they don't have flat. See this question that discuss this.

comment What are G7/D and C/G chords?
Related questions that can give more insight on this topic: How to play chords like G/B o “slash” chords, e.g. B/F♯ - are these only for inversions, or can any note be the bass note? o Does the bass note in a “slash” chord really have an associated interval? o Why is the G/F chord not shown?.

comment Playing guitar pieces flawlessly
@UlfÅkerstedt: I think this question deserves to be active as specific to guitar, as long as answers are pointing to specific considerations in this setting, and not just "practice makes perfect". The question you linked to has very god general answers to this, but there might also be more specific considerations as Shevliaskovic has already shown in his answer.

comment What are the arguments for and against over-practicing?
I have never come close to reach dangerous levels that are close to the limit of over-practicing. I think I might be at times close to the limit of "under-practicing" though...
