The guy in the blue shirt closest to the camera is playing an English; you can tell since it only has thumb straps.

comment Is there any research showing that practicing some amount of minutes a day improves ability?
This TEDx talk youtube.com/watch?v=5MgBikgcWnY puts some perspective on the 10,000 hours idea -- basically that 20 hours gives you some proficiency at a specific skill (of course being a world class musician requires >500 distinct skills). I'm not sure which research this speaker is basing his conclusions on.

This Harvard Buisiness Review article is one step closer to the original research: hbr.org/2007/07/the-making-of-an-expert/ar/1

comment Understanding just intonation, Timidity, and Scala
@bfootdav partially addressed you comment with edit. But you're getting at one of the drawback (features?) of just intonation, and (untempered) mean-tone tunings: the tuning is specified in relation to a central "home key" and playing music in other keys will sound different.

comment How does the harmonic series affect consonance?
@JCPedroza If you take two notes forming a minor 3rd, so their ratio is 1:6/5, then sixth harmonic at 6 of the lower (corresponding to a musical octave+5th), matches the fifth harmonic of the higher note (corresponding to a musical 3rd).
