I've cleaned up the comments here, I'm sure if anything fruitful arises from the chat you will edit :)

comment Microphone options for a bicycle bell
Shopping recommendations are off-topic here, so I've generalized your question a little. Hopefully an answer will give you the info you need to search for what fits your budget.

comment Why is touring Japan a big deal?
This seems like more of a question for Music Fans.

comment Is it possible to improve your sense of pitch? How?
This isn't quite an exact duplicate of the question I linked, but it's quite broad and generic. Please take a look at that and at the other related questions in the sidebar, and feel free to ask a more specific question if they don't address all of your concerns.

comment Can a 4-hole harmonica play this song?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too specific to be useful to other users. I see you've asked about the range in another question, though, which is excellent.

You could play the lowest note of the chords with your left hand.

comment In a bass guitar, how do I mute the strings that I am not playing?
Agreed with this. You can also use your left palm in the event where you need your other fingers.

@MattL. Clarity and subjectivity are entirely orthogonal concepts.

comment UNUSUAL problem with ring finger
I think we need a bit more explanation of this. Pictures might be helpful. Are you playing with your other fingers curled, or with flat fingers?

comment Does a time signature imply accents?
It's correct to say that the time signature does not determine the accents, but not that it doesn't imply them. As Wheat's answer says, time signature coupled with period and style will give a strong indication of how the beats are accented -- despite there being exceptions.

comment What key fits with the chords Em7, F#m7, and B7#5?
I can't comment on the particular piece, but it's incorrect to assume that a song can only use chords directly from its key.

comment How to use power chords with pentatonic scale?
Agreed the close reason is wrong, but this seems extremely opinion-based to me. You can user power chords however you like and build them off any scale.

comment Angled line over a note — standard notation or made up?
Hmm, that scoop marking is sometimes used for a doit or lip bend/slur too.

comment Angled line over a note — standard notation or made up?
Straight lines are sometimes used instead of a wavy one for glissando, but rarely without the lower note being specified and I've never see it over top of the note. I'd lean towards this being made up to be a quick glissando that's easier to write out.

comment Lilypond incorrectly displaying natural signs in B Major
I think I've correctly adjusted the title -- seems like basically the issue is that you've given Lilypond natural notes but a Bmaj key signature, so it's inserting naturals everywhere. It still doesn't make a lot of sense for this to be in B, though, so maybe I am headed in the wrong direction.

comment What is the meaning of time signatures with fractions on the top like ⅘ /4?
@CarlWitthoft I can't find any actual explanation of fractional time signatures there, just that they have been used. Noel, I would guess 2.5/4 would be the same as 5/8, and so on, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to notate it that way....
