comment Noise when attempting to bend the 8th hole on a harmonica
The stronger I blow, the louder the whizz- and that's it. (BTW, errata- I've just checked; 8th hole, not 7th!)

I'm not competent to answer your question, but when I was buying a piano for myself I had a lot of thoughts between Yamaha and Korg- but I made a decision after 30 minutes in a store where I could try out both. Maybe that would also be an option for you?

I haven't heard of modal jazz before, thanks! That really seems interesting... Even more than jazz itself :D

You are suggesting that the composers don't pay attention to the scales and all the theory when composing - are you sure of that? My guess would be that there are both "ear composers" and "math composers", and that the average composer would be somewhere in between these two approaches... But I don't know :)

Yes, I agree that analysing the structure of the piece itself (intervals! and also chord progressions, for instance) is an important benefit of this kind of exercise, because that's what I don't do at all when I practice with an instrument (as I need to stay focused on the notes and the technique).
