comment Why do triads sound strongest in second inversion?
Subjectivity. Mark Levine may think so, I don't. 1st inversion can sound strong as the tonic is on top. There's only 3 options, so why should one sound better, apart from to an individual?

comment Why is Hendrix's tuning at Woodstock in between Eb and E?
It happened a lot. I remember playing a gig, two bands on, and at the end of the night, both bands decided to play together the no. 1 for that week. Key sorted, it was horrendous. Only after the gig did I realise why. The two bands were a demi semitone out with each other!. Didn't make any difference when one band was playing - why would it?

The deceptive cadence is also known as an interrupted cadence.

Not being picky, but can the 'add' be left out, as it's a minor chord with a 6th - although I've never understood why it's a major 6th interval - except with a min6th it sounds awful!

Why have you called it F add6 rather than Fm6?

Not many people know that ! I certainly wasn't thinking of it ! So is it different from Fm6 ? Only, I guess, that Fm6 is a iv, not a V.

Minor dominant 9th on ii goes better to I, in my ears. Vm dom9 wants to go to V, making an imperfect cadence. Like the b and # 5ths and 9ths, (altereds) though.

comment Fender Strat - parity between neck and middle pickups
On the original Strats, from '50s/'60s, I thought all three pups were the same - the different sound is from their positions on the body.

comment In Bach's Prelude in A Minor, what chord is B D G# and what's its function?
@CalebHines - You're correct, and your answer is the better one. I wondered about calling it a second inversion, but with a note (E) missing from the sequence, thought maybe not.
