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.

comment What does a Clavinet “Register” mean?
Thanks. So nothing to do with pitch? To me it sounds like the timbre is changing, but not the pitch. When I see "register", I'm thinking it would mean an octave shift or similar.

comment How can I improve my piano accompaniments?
What style(s) of music are you playing? I've seen some good books that talk about left hand ideas for various pop styles. e.g. rock, blues, funk etc.

comment What is A flat to C minor?
About the chords sharing notes, that is Ab and Cm sharing C and Eb, in a way it's related because together you've got an Ab7. If you build a minor triad from the third, you end up with a 7 chord. That is, if Ab is the one, the third would be C, so you build a Cm and you end up with Ab C Eb G or Ab7.
