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.

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.
