A much better version of my comment. Well said.

comment Assigning a numerical value of clarity
Are you speaking of a universal measure? That's not really possible. But if you were comparing a sample to a recording of that sample being played in a particular environment I'm sure there are a number of useful metrics.

comment The major scale - why and how?
This doesn't quite work. The Major scale contains more dissonant intervals than 6:5 but not 6:5 itself, for example (e.g., C Major does not contain E flat).

It looks like you've made multiple unregistered accounts. If you intend to keep participating, I'd suggest registering one of them and then having them merged via music.stackexchange.com/contact

comment Why do notes have multiple names?
I'm not sure this really answers the question. It's mostly an aside until you say the answer is beyond the scope of the question. At minimum I think you should show when A# is useful.

comment What's the purpose of a sound post?
I'm a little confused by the last part. If the sound post is transmitting the vibrations, then the bottom will be in phase with the top (well, it will be off by the time it takes to propagate through the post, but close enough). In the absence of a sound post I could see the air movement causing the phases to be opposite ... but not both. Maybe something to do with the post being off-center, but intuitively I am not sure how the interior volume could change with that setup.

comment Why do Major keys contain minor chords?
@user3328660 And a chord is any set of two or more notes played together. A chord is "within" or "part of" a key when it is composed of notes originating from that key. Major keys and Major chords are not strictly related concepts, nothing about Major keys means they can't have minor chords.

comment Please tell me! Which scale this artist uses ? [Phrygian dominant scale , Melodic Minor, Arabian Scale or What else ?]
I've cleaned up the comments here slightly; please take any discussion of the validity of this closure to Meta. Alter, I know that there are music forums that could be helpful with this sort of question; unfortunately I am not active in any so I can't provide you with a specific link. Stack Exchange can sometimes be a frustrating format when you have a question that doesn't quite fit in the guidelines, but also very rewarding when you have the specific type of question we look for.

comment Custom xylophone sticks?
Hmm. Stale marshmallows on a stick? Or wrap cotton balls with electrical tape? Basically I'm thinking soft, but not too much so. Oh -- and is it wood or metal? In the former case my suggestions may be no good.

comment How to identify complex time signatures?
I have cleaned up the comments here; please take it to Meta. It is disappointing to see active users yet again decide to flood a new user's posts with over-the-top arguments and accusations, when they know perfectly well that this is not the place for it. Fat Joe, welcome to the site, and my apologies for the comment storm.
