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.

comment Besides a turntable, what equipment do I need to listen to vinyl records?
@slim I have reverted your edit. Ideally we'd want a question that is so very different to be asked separately. It might be OK as an edit, but it requires buy-in from the OP first. IMO this question has gone too far down the one road and asking another question would be a better idea.

All of you should know that comments are not the place for extended discussion. Please take it to chat in the future.

comment Why does plucked and bowed string of violin produces slightly different pitches?
@CarlWitthoft That's not a tuning method ... it's not relevant here given that a vibrating string is sinusoidal.

comment Why does plucked and bowed string of violin produces slightly different pitches?
The tuner doesn't use a method, you do (plucking or bowing). See if the tuner will pick up the fact that the plucked string gets more flat after a moment -- if you're going by its initial reading that might explain the discrepancy.

comment Why does plucked and bowed string of violin produces slightly different pitches?
This could be related to intonation, similar to how tuning a guitar by fourths will not be as accurate as tuning by the 5th/7th fret harmonics. Also note that a plucked note is more sharp on the initial attack and will decay down to the "real" frequency.

I'm sorry, but unbounded lists and story-sharing are off-topic on Stack Exchange. We need more specific, less chart questions.

comment Dyslexia and sheet music
Just to confirm, are you struggling with resolving the order of the notes? Learning to read sheet music can be quite difficult for anyone, especially and adult, so it may not be the case that you are having particular difficulty.

comment How do many keyboard players sound different in each song?
This is sort of like asking how to make spiced chicken taste different. Yes, different spices are different. I don't think it's much of a question.
