comment Co-wrote song in previous band, can you use it in a new band
This question appears to be off-topic because business and legal issues are off-topic here.

comment How to sing “like a girl” for men?
I do not believe this is a technique, it's simply the quality of their head voice. Nick Pitera in particular just has an exceptional range -- you can hear here how high he as to go before he needs to switch to falsetto.

comment I am a beginner piano player, have no idea how to emphasize a downbeat
I have to disagree very strongly with this or, at least, your teacher. You cannot hone accuracy without focusing on it. And, IMO, you cannot be properly expressive without it being purposeful. When you deviate from the tempo, use rubato, etc. you should know exactly what you're doing. Too many players think being sloppy makes them artistic.

comment I am a beginner piano player, have no idea how to emphasize a downbeat
I've cleaned up the comments a bit here, please keep it polite. Personally, I agree with this answer; an absolute beginner should not be worrying about the intricacies of rubato.

comment Does each note have a more specific name depending on its pitch?
The standard "A" is often called A440, as in 440Hz. Some orchestras might use A438, A442, or others. This can be (and is) extended to any other note/pitch.

Please add some detail to the question so that it is searchable and useful to others.

comment What are the different rhythm styles? Is that the right word?
I have removed the identification portion from your question, since that is considered off-topic here.

comment What does an arc mean above the notes in a piano sheet music? How do I play it?
@SeuMenezes No problem, it's confusing that they all look the same. I would guess that we get the word "ligature" from the same Latin root as your "ligadura", but it's something else entirely (though still related).

@SeuMenezes In that case you would call the marking a phrase mark, in the same way you would not call a tie a slur.

comment Why are the natural notes on the staff special?
I think the answers did a fair job of addressing that part, which I why I only commented.

comment Why are the natural notes on the staff special?
They're not special. If it were different, you'd just be asking why it was that way instead of this way. Pure convention!

Unfortunately this also falls under our policy against "shopping advice". Reviews of resources and tools are outside our scope.

comment Do any musicians release the original separate tracks for remixing/remastering?
Greg, I think there is value to this question but it seems that we are starting to get a lot of short answers with a single example. "Poll questions" are off-topic so I'm going to close this, but hopefully the answers so far are helpful.

comment Help identifying an harmonic progression
He's asking if the same progression appears in both songs, not anything technical about the progression. If you don't like this close reason, it falls under the "identification" one too.

comment Fretless bass buzz
Bradd is right; answers are not the place for editorializing. And shopping advice is off-topic. His problem is valid and not going to be sorted by talking about what he should have bought. I've cleaned up the comments.

comment Why do I need to learn counterpoint if I know harmony?
Counterpoint has specific rules, and relates to melodic progressions. Harmony is simply how notes relate when played together, which is much more broad and subjective.

Questions should be self-contained. We'll have no idea what you're asking if that site goes down.
