comment What's so special about minor and major scales?
The fourth paragraph indeed explains to me why for instance Phrygian mode (white keys from E) could be troublesome- I couldn't have the dominant chord with only the tones from the scale (and Locrian would not even allow me to have the tonic chord this way), which in order would hurt the harmonisation (is that the point?). But Dorian (D) still has I, IV and Vth chords in the scale... Is there any particular advantage of having the dimnished triad placed on the leading tone?

The German musical system (H and B) is actually what I've been consistently taught back in primary school here in Poland :) Thanks for explanation for the rationale behind it!

comment Important to know which note you are playing?
Thanks for this answer! I was very uneasy with the fact that whenever I tried to play from notes I eventually ended up playing from muscle memory (which can't get me too far on its own), good to know that's a common thing. The idea of playing back to front sounds brilliant!

comment Why do minor keys sound “sad”?
I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned the temperament here, as it affects how a key actually sounds I think.
