comment Tabs/Partitures Version Control System?
See here stackoverflow.com/questions/104453/version-control-for-binaries for the general problem -- the idea of exporting to ASCII tab (or XML), and then diffing those, might help.

comment Flat symbol in key signature and bar
In parentheses? again that is a case where the editor though that that was the clearest way to indicate that that note should be B-flat.

comment The Kokyuu! (Holding down strings on bowed instruments)
As with other stringed instruments, you can generate "natural harmonics" by gently placing your finger at the appropriate places.

see anaphoria.com/hrgm.PDF, google.com/… which I found by combining Kraig Grady (the composer associated with them in the wiki article) with horogram in my searches

comment How do you organize your set list for a gig?
I'd think that this will depend on the context of the gig; specifying in more detail what your situation is would help to focus the answers.

comment Why do certain rooms/vessels respond to specific frequencies?
Trombone comes to mind as an instrument that obviously changes in size to effect changes in the resonant frequencies.

comment Why does music seem to transpose when I yawn?
I always thought that the Eustachian tube en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eustachian_tube was involved, not so much a change in tension.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
Since you've shown some interest I wrote out my concept as an answer; Emacs is cross platform; if you're a vi user, look into viper-mode for emacs.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
This doesn't quite meet the requirement of the fundamental source being lilypond, but there might be a way to do this using Emacs Org-Mode, with the Babel/literate programming extensions to have an org file that contains the score, exports to HTML, and "tangles" the document into straight lilypond source.

comment Rendering lilypond score into html page
Is this what you want: (1) a single .ly file that contains the entire score and (2) some way to export snippets from it to HTML without having to manually/explicitly copy content from the score file into a separate file?

comment How does the type of wood used to make an acoustic guitar affect its sound?
I interpret this question as being significantly different from the violin one: this one (seems to) ask "What effects will different woods have", the latter seems to ask "Why should I care about the type of wood in a violin?". I cannot envision an answer to the "What effects..." question that is not one of (a) subjective or (b) a book length answer that goes into the overall design of guitars

Possibly useful: amjbot.org/content/93/10/1439.full Breedlove guitars has a more qualitative description breedlovemusic.com/features/top-woods-binding-styles , I've seen other similar (and similarly unsubstantiated) tone wood graphs in other places too.

It's worth noting that Sibelius has a free (gratis) reader program, Scorch.

comment File formats for sheet music
Right, I'd interpret the answers below advocating for MusicXML as: "get software that supports MusicXML input/output so that you can use this relatively standardized file format to exchange data with other programs."

comment Where along the strings to pick?
Don't limit yourself, sometimes Kieth Richards picks out over the neck itself.
