comment How to recognize the end of a piece of music
This doesn't answer the question, which was how the applauding audience knows to applaud ("How did they know the difference").

comment Why transpose at the octave?
This makes sense, +1, and thanks, but what about instruments that only sometimes transpose, like the piano, whose bass clef sometimes means one octave down?

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
Oh! So many different chords are called "Ⅰ", and the song contains many such! So it's not really only four chords: it's lots of chords with just Cs Es and Gs (Ⅰ chords), and lots of chords with [whatevers] (Ⅳ chords), and lots of chords with [whatevers] (Ⅴ chords), and lots of chords with [whatevers] (ⅵ chords). They just all have the same name ("Ⅰ", etc.), so the Axis of Awesome called them all one chord. Now that's an answer (if, of course, I understood you right) (and coupled with your point about "the basis…. Other chords… transition to one of the 4 main chords…. …recognizably…").

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
Okay, so the chord comprising, say, middle C, the note a third higher, and the C two octaves lower has no number? And: Why would you consider a note part of a chord when it's played alone? (Or did you mean it's part of an arpeggiated chord, played alone but in very close proximity to other notes?)

(And considering how many possible sets of notes could be played simultaneously and sound good, I'm surprised they're numbered. What do the numbers go to, the thousands? But I suppose that's another question....)

Thanks; +1; that makes a lot of sense to me (except the second sentence).

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
[cont'd] In that case, "hitting and releasing keys, sure, but only as parts of the same chords" makes no sense to me. The keyboardist was playing different sets of keys. Note WP's "A chord in music is any harmonic set of two or more notes that is heard as if sounding simultaneously".

Hitting middle C and the E above it and the G above that simultaneously is playing one chord; then hitting middle C and the E above it and the A above that is playing another chord. Right? (Again, you haven't explained your "a chord can be played in many different ways, so if I wanted to I could play a 4 chord song using 20 different variations of that chord".) In that case, [cont'd]

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
My point was that you can see many different sets of notes being played on the keyboard in the video, and hear many different sounds sung, in a supposedly four-chord song. I thank you for your correction to my definition of chord, but I don't see how that correction addresses my question. Your last sentence, "a chord can be played in many different ways, so if I wanted to I could play a 4 chord song using 20 different variations of that chord" looks like it may be an attempt to answer my question — if you'd explain how that works, and that it's done in the medley "4 Chords".
