comment Guitarists: Back Pain After a Gig
Thanks for the response. Try to have the guitar as high as poss., it appears that you have previous back problems, so higher will not exacerbate them. It's probably easier to gyrate around on stage with a high slung guitar, anyway! You tagged 'bass guitar' as well. Why?

comment Gregorian modes in Renaissance music (with Cabezón's 'Tiento del Cuarto Tono' as an example)
It's starting in A minor, and the first C# is to take it to D minor. The G# is then to get back to A minor. While the G# is common in A minor pieces, the C# isn't. Unless it's modulated to D minor... No F# in sight, so 'having a key sig. of 3#' doesn't seem a possibility. Did I just spot one in the 2nd line? More like A melodic minor, then.

comment Why is this stripe (or N) used to display a crotchet rest?
As Caleb says, the crotchet rest used to be the mirror image of a quaver rest (much easier to write!), Its placing on the staff doesn't seem very important, too.

comment Is this a tie or a slur or something else?
If it's laissez vibrer, how can the note/s be allowed to ring when there's a rest to 'play' straight after the note/s. That would effectively stop them.

comment In a 3/4 piece, how would I score a single 4/4 bar where each beat is a triplet?
What exactly is the 'pulse' of the song - as in - are you tapping your foot 3 times in the 3/4 and tapping at the same speed for the 4/4, only adding one extra tap? Or - as is sometimes the case - the 4/4 bar is executed in the same length of time as the 3/4 bar. The former is more common.

On the assumption that crotchet=crotchet, this works. +1.

+1 for the pulse point. It will affect how it's all written dramatically. Most times, it'll be a constant crotchet, but only the composer actually knows right now.

I wonder what the 'And' at the end is doing.

comment Using a microphone through a guitar amplifier
I thought the question was how to plug the mic into the guitar amp., which doesn't address the fact that it may not sound too good. It won't sound as good as a proper P.A., but that's not the issue - yet.

comment Using a microphone through a guitar amplifier
Just a P.A. then - an amp and speakers. A D.I box probably actually would do for the OP, although it's more used to convert high impedance into low.
