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.

comment Should I provide the mic for another band's accordionist? We we'll play on the same gig.
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.

comment Pursuing a career in music
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.

I don't feel that trying to change the question into something it's not was effective or appropriate here.

This is pretty broad. And why do you think you can't verify your answers against whatever resource you use?

comment Name for a group of notes made up of a root, major third, and perfect 4th?
A triad is simply three notes, and a chord is any combination of notes. Major and minor triads are, of course, composed of a Maj/min third and a min/Maj third (or perfect fifth from the root).

Good thought, I've done this too. A small mallet might help.

comment How to learn piano without owning a piano?
Without prior piano experience, it's sort of like asking whether you can learn what an apple tastes like without ever tasting anything. You might get some clues, but that's about it.

comment I can hardly memorize piano notes
Is just like to add that an important subtype of memory is muscle memory -- you won't need to know the sound or shape/composition of chords at all if your hands are simply forming the right shapes at the right time!

Guys, seriously, DO NOT HOLD THIS DISCUSSION HERE. Go to Meta. Everything here gets lost when I clean up the comments.
