comment Characteristics of single-coil (Telecaster) sound
Non-uniform might not have been the right word. All of the delays are of constant latency, but there is more than one of them, and they all have different (short) delay times.

Are you sure it is not just a non-uniform delay? the very short delays involved in a wave passing from one pickup to the other will produce (non-modulated) flanger-like notches in the spectrum.

comment Simulating speaker distortion with Doppler shift
The more I think about it, the more I'm confused; so I asked a related question at Physics: physics.stackexchange.com/questions/107965/…

comment Simulating speaker distortion with Doppler shift
I'm leaving in the initial disclaimer (i.e. that "this doesn't happen") because more than one person mis-interpreted your question along these lines.

comment Simulating speaker distortion with Doppler shift
My point is that typical non-linear distortion models cover (most of) the relevant phenomenology. But now I'll edit to reflect a new (better?) idea of what you are getting at.

comment Decrease bpm and practice
Even decreasing the tempo to a point well below where you are comfortable is useful as it allows you to monitor exactly what you are doing more easily.

comment special quality of pure silver tone
In my opinion, the fact that the acoustic properties that you are interested in are independent of whether the silver is incorporated into a musical instrument or not, indicates to me that the question might be better suited to a different site, and thus get better answers there.

comment special quality of pure silver tone
I'd suggest, maybe, the Physics SE -- I suspect it has to do with a (relative) lack of impurities/imperfections in fine silver relative to brass or steel.

comment special quality of pure silver tone
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about material properties rather than musical practice & performance; isn't even (directly) related to instrument construction.

comment (1/√π)/√⅔ as a time signature?
A key feature of this is that both the top and bottom are irrational numbers, thus no notated beat ever aligns exactly with the beat, nor do any of the bars.

comment High-end headset/lavalier mics vs handheld for vocals
This might be good (better?) for sound-design?

comment Guitar solo techniques
I'd emphasize learning and using the melody of the song that the solo is in.

comment How reasonable is the idea to start learning drums from solo playing?
By "soloing" do you mean "using only one drum" (as opposed to a full kit)?

comment What does the roman numeral notation mean for this borrowed chord?
@TimSeguine maybe not authoritative, but wikipedia refers to it en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barre_chord#Notation

comment What does the roman numeral notation mean for this borrowed chord?
The 6/5 at the end are the number of strings to barre; i.e. CIII5 explicitly indicates that you do not need to fret the 6th string at the third fret.

comment What is a good workflow for adding new music to my Traktor collection?
Code blocks get parsed by jTab (guitar tabulature, holdover from a merge with the Guitar SE site) -- use a <pre></pre> block to get un-parsed, fixed display text.

comment Which strings do I need to play these notes?
I think you might want to try tuning them by ear; I'm sure there's a way (but don't have time to look for it now) to generate the pitches you seek on your computer.

comment Why do we use so complicated notation?
Also note that varieties of C clefs (instead of just G and F) were used for much early music; for example, they're referred to in Gradus ad Parnassum.

Early vocal notation, neume that influenced later staff notation.

comment Why do we use so complicated notation?
Staff notation evolved out of notations, primarily for vocal music, that preceded the use of piano-style keyboards; stating that keyboards are the driving force behind staff notation is inaccurate.
