comment What is an X symbol appearing in a piano part?
One way or the other, this is close to the worst sheet music typesetting I have seen. Bars have incomplete voices, and the notation is inconsistent: Why cis4. and a2 in bar 84 do not share their stem, but similar notes in other bars do? What is the half rest in bars 84,85 good for when it does not belong to any voice? Etc.

Be careful not to damage the dumper further by this!

comment What music notation software allows you to code the notation?
As a LaTeX professional and an avid LilyPond user, I have to afree with @leftaroundabout that LaTeX is not really suitable for typesetting music.

comment What is double about the double bass?
Not only in American English, but in many other languages too. For instance, it's kontrabas in Czech. The term dvojitá basa does not exist at all (well, it exists in automatically translated texts...)

comment Why do pianos have piano hinges?
Also, transported "on the side", with the hinge down, needing extra strength.

comment Sing along to connect my ear with my instrument (guitar)
This is a good advice certainly. Singing is not detrimental. It's the ability to imagine the melody in your head. I think that actually being able to imagine the melody is harder (and therefore "better") than singing it, because you have to do it without the listening feedback.

comment Stage manager of music?
Sometimes yes and sometimes no, it really depends. Madonna may travel with a fixed team of dozens of people. Small bands travel without any "technician/manager".

This is an interesting explanation, but I doubt it's true. Have you got any reference for this claim, please?

comment How can I avoid making unpleasant facial expressions when playing difficult chords?
My good friend plays the piano with his mouth wide open. I almost frown when playing the piano, and I close my eyes when playing the guitar. Et cetera. It's no big deal IMHO :D

While this question is IMHO on-topic here, I believe you can find the right audience at Sound Design.SE.

comment When to use a dot or a tie in music notation?
I'm with @11684 here, with my typography hat on. There are only very little rules in typography in general. Mostly it's conventions. Whether an author/typesetter decides to stick to the convention or not is up to him. For instance, if you get loads and loads of these notes that break the pattern, then you probably use the dotted notation, since the reader very likely won't get the pattern anyway during the first reading, and you lessen the amount of things to read. But again, that's just my opinion and another typesetter will have a different opinion.

@NoelWalters Rests and notes are different w.r.t. full-bar duration!
