comment What are the characteristic intervals or scales of 13-limit harmony and beyond?
From what I've read, that is also part of the problem - as interval ratios approach that of the 12-ET system, it is harder and harder for people to distinguish between the microtones and the "normal" ones. To that end, appropriate tuning and playing with these extremes is more practical with electronic equipment or percussion, which can be tuned of course.

comment How much time are you supposed to spend on a piece approximately at your difficulty level?
Interesting to know your average turn-around time for relationships. XD

comment Is it acceptable to change tempo in the middle of a song or is this a bad idea?
@DarrenRinger I would amend your comment by adding in the drummer. If a bassist and drummer are locked in together, you're good to go. Otherwise, you've got a nightmare.

@luserdroog Pick your poison, they all get you to the same place. English is wonderful for butchering other languages and cultures. :)

comment How does a pipe organist deal with latency or delay?
A quick comment about iPads, this is assuming of course that every touch of the iPad is a perfect touch and there is nothing inhibiting the screen. It also depends a bit on the quality of the coding.

comment Preparing for my first jazz gig
If you know all the tunes you're playing ahead of time, analyze the chords - see if you can find common scales among chords. You may find that a sheet with 16 chords in it might only need two scales, which may end up only being one scale shape that you can then transpose at the proper time to "catch" the changes. No one will knock you for playing simple. As others have said, it's when you try and do too much that will make you stick out and look foolish, especially when your sitting with someone who's got chops.

I thought the answer to this was clear in my explanation. I will edit to be more explicit.

comment Changing from bass to saxophone
@RockinCowboy Yes you are right, there is an edit history, so anyone can look at the changes made (or un-made, as it were). We need to be vigilant about how edits are approved. tv's edits only happened because someone approved the edit.
