comment Difference between a I7 - V resolution and I7 - IV resolution
Yes absolutely - apologies; I thought it was evident given the chord spelling. It's good to be careful.

comment Difference between a I7 - V resolution and I7 - IV resolution
In addition to the leading tone, you need to remember the role of the 7th. The 7th always wants to lead downwards. So, the Bb would want to lead to "A", the third of F major. Moving chromatically up to "B" would be an interesting move.

Whether or not it's "good" is entirely dependent on context and artistic intent. C7-G could be considered a deceptive cadence. Also, your roman numerals are incorrect. In the key of "G", C7-G would be IV7-I. In F, V7-I.

Since it's a computer program, can't you just copy / paste the material?

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.

comment What is the Lydian Chromatic Concept?
@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.

Actually, opinions are not okay for the site. Take a look at the Help Center: music.stackexchange.com/help/asking

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?

comment When composing for oboe, how useful is it to think about recorder fingerings?
@leftaroundabout For microtones / multiphonics, I would definitely consult live players. Different instruments respond differently and you'll want to hear / see what's happening. Few things anger players more than when a composer reads something in a book and puts it in a piece without actually knowing what it is / how it works. Specifically for oboe, microtones will be easier if they're lipped and in the upper registers.

comment When composing for oboe, how useful is it to think about recorder fingerings?
@leftaroundabout - Sincerest apologies - in my head I was thinking alto recorder and wrote tenor. The best way to find the answer to your question is to have the music played on both oboe and tenor recorder and see how each responds. Most orchestration books have fingering charts in the back or found online. The Alfred Blatter orchestration resource I mentioned is great because it shows dynamic envelopes for each of the instruments, which is very helpful. My answer was written with the idea of teaching a man to fish, not giving him one; this is why my answer is not specific to oboe.

comment Is classical singing with self-accompaniment ok?
Agreed with SomeDude here - the child is young - let them make music and enjoy it for the sake of enjoying it and experience what they must. Goals are good, but there is a fine line between your goals and your child's goals. The goals in this question are not those of your child, but yours. Is your child interested in both? What are your child's goals? If your child wants to do both at the same time, great. If they want to do a funk arrangement of the piece, great. If they want to scat over the original music, great. They are only limited by their imagination and your presupposed goals.
