comment Convincing colleague that playing to a metronome is a good thing?
Perfectly straight is a (particular) feel, and an essential one for a well rounded musician.

comment What defines an instrument?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a general language usage (and maybe philosophical) question.

comment String vs Percussion - What is a Piano?
There's one other common usage of percussion: "in the class of instruments that percussionists play", or "would appear in the percussion section". The piano isn't a percussion instrument in this orchestration/arrangement sense.

comment A (440 Hz) and A (880 Hz) are completely different sounds to me. Does this mean I'm tone deaf?
Note the disclaimer "pretty much every human", you may be in the minority of people who don't (easily) identify octaves as equivalent. I haven't been able to find any studies on how rare this is. Since no one else can get inside your head it is hard to tell if this is tone deafness (color analogy: everything is sort of grey) or super-acuity in pitch perception, or something more complicated, and not easily described on a deafness<->acuity scale.

@topomorto Your comment on another answer, to the effect that "universal across cultures" is not the same as "universal across people" is an important point that might be worth incorporating.

I don't find your description of "continues riffing" as accurate; What I hear is melisma on the final vocal note. "Continues riffing" implies to me multiple iterations of a phrase (with/without variations).
