I regularly visit Stack Exchange to help out people with their questions and help maintain the community. Located in Belgium, I am studying Computer Science at the University of Antwerp.

When I think a post can be improved I will try to do so by fixing grammatical or spelling errors, clarifying meaning without changing it, correcting minor mistakes, adding related resources or links. For the less obvious things of those I will leave a note in the edit, click on the date to see this.

I will only edit content in posts once, and let the author or other users be free to choose to rollback; when there are opposing views, we can raise this to meta to let the majority decide which revision of the post they want.

This will be done with respect of the original author and when I'm sure enough that it would only improve the post, if you need to contact me then you can e-mail me at the following address:

Or if you have enough reputation, try to send me a message with @TomWij on the Super User Chat where I am usually when I am online.

Have a nice day! :)

comment Why is the piano such a commonly used instrument?
@MatthewRead: I was referring to different styles of music, that should be clear out of the context. If I'm using the word music then I'm not at all talking about pitches...

comment How can I prevent the noise my guitar pick makes?
@NReilingh: When I play a chord, after my pick triggers one string it then falls against the next string causing a clashing noise which kind of irritates me. Can I use the pick without that noise or should I play chords with my hands instead?

@Noldorin: Feel free to remove your comment and place it as an answer instead. More detail is always welcome, it would make your answer more convincing. I would suggest to use a picture that compares the range of a piano and the guitar, and elaborate on the musical styles. I've also got one more question: Is the piano itself still limited? If so, only limited by genres that are specific to an instrument (drum 'n bass) or limited by more? Thank you for your quick response...

comment How can I stay informed of new art music?
Introducing subjectivity in that way will cause arguements, which is why your question would be considered bad subjective. See this meta answer for more detail.
