comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
@Karen, oh is it only the keyboard they meant? Perhaps do post that as an answer. I mean, the question is pretty much specific to this song.

This doesn't answer the question, which was how the applauding audience knows to applaud ("How did they know the difference").

Per a suggestion that I clarify my question, I've edited it. You might wish to have a look at the new version and see whether you wish to edit your answer.

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
[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".

comment Four-chord songs with more than four chords
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".

comment When and why should the conductor be separate or not from the musicians?
+1; thank you for your views! Re your last point, development: The two times (AFAIR) I've heard someone conducting and playing were Leonard Bernstein on the piano (conducting (the New York Philharmonic IIRC) and playing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, on audiotape) and Itzhak Perlman on the violin (Vivaldi's Spring, on YouTube). If either man "develop[ed] less than [he] could [have] just focusing on one of them" then I'd love to have been able to hear the results of the finer focus and attendant development. ;-)

@MatthewRead, oh, and also: My wording was deliberately not favoring "separatism" or "two-roles-ism", whereas the new title is asking only when and why the conductor should be separate, not when and why he should not. So I guess some tweaking is necessary after all....

@MatthewRead, thanks for the edit, no tweaking necessary. I wonder why you switched "first violinist or pianist" to "pianist or first violinist", though.

@ogarard "let's also explain the difference between head voice and falsetto", and explain yodeling, too, while y'all're at it.
