comment Why are notes beamed across the barline in this piece?
The bowing confuses me - it shows a 4 note phrase, but with each note bowed separately. Could they be played with a single downbow?

@Dom - I love 'detonated' - Guy Fawkes lives again ! But did you mean 'notated' or 'denoted'?

comment Different Simile Marks
The first example seems odd, in that the simile marks could/should be present in the left hand part as well.

comment Can chords found in parallel modes of the relative minor of a key (or relative major when in a minor key) be considered borrowed chords?
That II chord is surely a VI. The sequence looks like it's in C, with a dom. G7. Calling A II presumes it's in G. Em can lead to A, weakly, as the step is a fourth up, very common.The parallel would be Cmin., which has no sharps to make the A. It could be construed that it's a parallel Amaj. instead of the usual Amin.

comment Is it necessary to learn a new scale to improvise over it?
@Darren Ringer - that quote from Longfellow, mid 19th C, was probably made with no knowledge of Eastern music - he was American, and not a musician. Just because someone famous said something, doesn't make it true ! "What do you mean, the world's not flat ?"
