comment Is there a convention to notate anticipation?
@Tim, no doubt the confusion is because I'm a beginner at this. In measure 16 above, the Dmi continues from measure 15, and is played on the first beat and a half in 16, then the Bb comes in on the "and" of 2. Perhaps I should have written it more explicitly, but that's what I'm trying to figure out.

comment Is there a convention to notate anticipation?
@Tim, apologies, perhaps I wasn't clear. I don't mean the pushed chord happens right on beat 3, I mean the pushed (anticipated) chord happens on the "and" of 2. And yes, it is a 4/4 time signature. If it helps, here's the song, and that anticipated Bb in measure 16 above happens at around 0:39 - youtube.com/watch?v=xo-J1wf2KHc

comment Is there a convention to notate anticipation?
@ToddWilcox, it's a term I've been taught that means one plays the chord a little bit early, so rather on, in this example, Bb being played on beat 3, it's played on the "and" of 2. Here's a definition I found - musicarrangerspage.com/1493/how-to-use-anticipation-in-music I've also seen it defined as "Also known as 'pushes' or 'kicks'. Generally an anticipations occurs when a musical event is placed immediately before a downbeat, and then is sustained or is followed by a rest on that downbeat". (The Pop Piano Book by Mark Harrison, p. 475. ISBN 0-7935-9878-8).

comment The notes outside the major scale form a pentatonic scale
Not directly related to the question, but similar to what others have commented, I've used the black key only thing when a kid comes up and is curious about my keyboard. If they're not too shy to give it a shot, I'll play a 12 bar blues in Eb, and tell them to "play whatever you want, but only on the black keys". Fun.

comment Is there a term that describes straight 8ths / 16ths vs swing?
This is a great response (and comment) - thank you. Gave me something to look into. Unfortunately I don't know enough quite yet to be able to tell if this is the term I was looking for or not. I certainly appreciate you sharing the information!

comment How to 'feel' note duration
+1 - Reminds me of what an instructor once told me - "learn how to count so you can forget how to count".

comment Blues Scale Notes - major 6th?
Another way to think about this is playing a blues scale built from the tonic (minor blues), and a blues scale built from the 6th (major blues). Less things to memorize for some. Note that the C major blues scale contains the same notes as the A minor blues scale (A is the 6th of C). Also interesting to hear the difference - the blues scale built from the 6th sounds more "in" the key than the one built from the tonic.
