comment Inverted 7th chords in open position
Welcome to the site Hello Box! I'm voting to close this question because it is too specific / only helpful to you in its present form. It is also a simple analysis / homework question, and we just don't do people's homework here. That said, if you re-write the question to be more broad, say, "How do I determine inversions of V7 chords?" then that could helps lots of people and we could whip up a nifty answer for you.

comment Modes: More complicated than it seems?
@Tim Yes, parent key. All seven modes with parent scale being C Ionian, for example. Same tonal region, 6 additional tonal centers. You're correct, this is one reason why musica ficta was common practice for many years. "Tone-region" is like your neighborhood. "Tonal center" is like your house. "Tonality" is like the fact you live in a house, as opposed to outdoors.

comment Modes: More complicated than it seems?
@Tim Great question. The aural implication would definitely lean towards D minorish. My statement about "keeping the tonality" was specific to the idea that to play modes in a given key, you shouldn't have to alter anything (e.g. non-diatonic notes). So, while the Final and tonal center are shifted to the new note, the overall tone-region would stay relatively the same.

@MattL. Yes, the point you made made me realize that my answer lacked some specificity - specifically relating to use of perfect fifths.

comment What is the Lydian Chromatic Concept?
@MattL. If you happened to read the top of my answer, you would have seen that I said that the theory "asserts" (as in an inference) that the lydian scale is more closely aligned to the natural, universal properties of sound than the conventional major scale, not that the theory itself states it explicitly. Close though the frequencies may be, the 11th partial of the overtone series is almost always understood to be a flattened #4. I rarely see productive conversations when people start using "cents" and "Hz" as you can quickly dissolve the inherent validity of any note.

comment What is the best way to learn Guitar?
Hello Vishwas Goswami, and welcome to the site! Your question is quite broad and unfortunately, too opinion-based. Everyone will answer with what they think is important. You may get some responses (and prevent the question from being closed) by re-writing it to be more general / less opinion-oriented.

comment What will be the best choice for an electric guitar for an intermediate player?
Hello Sayan, welcome! Per the FAQ, recommendations on equipment is discouraged as it is primarily opinion-based, too broad in scope, but too specific to the original poster to be of future use to others. If you can edit the question to be more general and help others, I'm sure an answer will come along.

comment Why does my voice crack while I'm singing and how do I prevent it?
Agreed, this is a pretty general problem. Off the cuff thoughts: drink more water + always properly warmup / warmdown + sing music comfortable for your range

comment Is classical singing with self-accompaniment ok?
@Josiah That sounds fantastic; you managed to get me excited about Wagner, which hasn't happened in some time. I also agree with Somedude; see my other comment. :)

comment Is classical singing with self-accompaniment ok?
@SomeDudeOnTheInterwebs Oh, I agree completely; they are morons until they are not. I'm absolutely not saying a child shouldn't have structure / guidance, I was merely making the point that adults should not live through their kids and/or impose needless aspirations on them. Children need substantial amounts of structure, but you have to make sure you're giving them the right kind of structure.

comment Advice: 'Real' Musical Ability?
You are missing your heart. What do you feel? You didn't once mention what music makes you feel. If you cannot play it without looking at it, you don't know it in your heart. If you don't know it in your heart, you can't really feel it. If you can't feel it, you can't connect to it. If you can't connect to it, how is a listener going to?
