comment Stress in music
I think that the OP is referring to the rhythmic accents that define the pulse of the music.

comment Difference between recording with a microphone in front of the amp vs. using an amp simulator?
Worth noting that depending on the details of the amp modeller, the amount of latency involved, particularly for monitoring, might make that approach less desirable.

comment Why is a minor 3rd consonant but an augmented 2nd dissonant?
@JCPedroza 1) they behave different harmonically because they are (in JI and some other tuning systems) different pitches 2) 40 cents in a harmonic context is pretty discernible (added to answer in edit) 3) the composer is indicating whether the given given interval is intended to be consonant or dissonant, and how it's intonation should be if performed by an instrument with fine pitch control.

comment Piano Marvel for learning piano online
I think that this question can be objectively answered: the program may or may not have features geared towards helping develop improvisation or compositional skills.

Welcome to the site. This question is likely to get closed the way it it currently written: there isn't a clear question in, and if your soliciting for where to find such resources it's (probably) off topic. Maybe you should take a look at the help pages: music.stackexchange.com/tour

comment Can I use bass pick as guitar pick?
Felt picks are available (often marketed as ukulele picks) -- I have not found them useful on guitar; they tend to "grab" on the thinner guitar strings and just produce a dull, muffled tone.

comment Which takes less time and effort to learn?
@LeeWhite it is likely that the correct answer to this question is specific to BROY as an individual (too localized), and as currently formulated is open ended in the sense that there are no specific milestones to define when to "stop the stopwatch" (unclear what you are asking). The linked question in your comment doesn't have these problems if it is interpreted as "which skills do/don't carry over from playing piano to playing organ?"

comment How do guitarists switch on/off multiple effects via pedalboards?
Don't confuse "looper" a device that allows you to record and overdub short segments of sound, with and effects loop switcher.

comment What are the significant schools of 20th century music theory?
(Part of) the motivation behind the close votes is that an answer that is just a list of references is not "good content" (as useful as it might be). By having the question structured so that a responsive answer includes content about the relevant schools makes the resulting question+answers page more useful as an entity to itself.

comment Tradeoff between powering off and leaving tube amplifier on during breaks
I'd like to emphasize one point: it is the heating/cooling of the tube filaments that are the primary cause of wear that leads to tube failure, not whether there is sound coming out of the speakers. Using the standby switch (which keeps the tubes hot) or turning down the master volume (which should do the same) has the same effect in terms of avoiding additional heating/cooling cycles.

comment Does a guitar ebow work on bass?
Nowadays they only make guitar ebows (I have one of the newer, blue-light ones); I've heard rumors that many years ago there was a run of bass specific ebows manufactured, but I've never actually seen one.
