comment How to determine electronic genre?
My concern is "too broad"-- without qualification there could be hundreds of niche sub-genres to consider.

comment Vocal free-time song: legato question, and slur (“portamento” vs “glissando”) specific case
For the de we have a half note tied (this is not a legato slur even though the symbology is the same) to an eighth note, indicating that the de is sustained until the ba syllable, which occurs off of the beat.

Sometimes he goes by / or just 47, but most people call him "slash".

comment Learning a guitar tab: separating bass line from melody
"Should I do this" is pretty subjective -- depends on what you want and are attuned to; asking "What are the advantages/disadvantages of this approach?" would be better.

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
@AmericanLuke at least according to Wikipedia the critical period for language hypothesis is not totally uncontroversial. The chances that anyone has observed an unambiguous signal for a similar effect on highest levels of musical skill acquisition are slim to none. That's why I prefer the formulation in terms of "famous performers who started as adults" -- by construction, we (should) know who the ensemble of famous performers are.

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
+1 IMHO Jimi Hendrix's start at the age of 15 (the latest start I could find) does not count as a counter-example since it was pre adulthood. Dr. John's transition to piano in adulthood (the other reasonable example I could find) occurred after an early start on guitar does not count as a counter example. It is hard to prove a negative, but in this case I do believe that we (collectively) would know of the counter-examples, if they in fact existed.

comment Advice on Bass Pedal
This question appears to be off-topic because "Are the Boss and Tech21 pedals redundant with each other?" is too localized. The other side of this question boils down to equipment recommendations.

comment Do musicians that began playing from an early age have an incontestable advantage?
If I can believe this: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… many "international music competitions" are focued on young performers, and thus the dearth of late starters in them is probably not indicative of anything wrt this isssue.

@CarlWitthoft it's not designed to reach a given RH, thus my search for additional ways to keep it from oscillating too much, also c.f. accepted answer here: music.stackexchange.com/questions/22847/…

comment Are music covers and the sheet music of their arrangements legal on YouTube?
LOML link does not substantiate the claim that distributing covers is perfectly legal in the absence of consent from the rights holder.

comment Are music covers and the sheet music of their arrangements legal on YouTube?
There's some autoformmating going on -- the super script footnotes show up as links to the linked documents. I found this confusing at first.

comment What does the “+” symbol mean in a keyboard piece when attached to a note?
I figured that since this piece is arranged for organ, and since some of the answers indicate that for some instruments there is a (potentially) different interpretation, it would be useful to include the organ tag.

This isn't organ related? (organ tag was removed)
