comment Are there any machine-readable databases of chord progressions available?
@ChrisCirefice I haven't made any progress towards collecting chord progressions in machine-readable form but you've prompted me to start looking again :-)

comment Non-fixed-frequency instruments playing by themselves versus with fixed-frequency instruments
@ReinaAbolofia but does that mean you'd call a piano "fretted" and a singer "non-fretted"?

comment What are some common jazz chord progressions?
I think this is an acceptable question; if we can have questions about a composer's or era's style, why can't we have questions about specific chord progressions that are common in a genre. An answer could talk about 12-bar blues, rhythm changes (and variants), other contrafacts, alternative turnarounds, etc. Seems like a decent question to me (at least as it currently stands in its edited form).
