comment Tips for tuning a dulcimer/psaltery/etc with arthritis?
Oh wow. Thank you for pointing out Tom Doughty to me, and also for the great suggestion about extending the T wrench. That sounds like it would work well and shouldn't be too hard to fabricate.

comment When did Bach diverge from the style of Palestrina?
Opinion questions are not a good fit here. "Who's better?" is not objectively answerable. If you want to ask about the key differences between their styles you can do that. (And since 16th- and 18th-c counterpoint are rather different, I don't think "who's better" is a particularly useful question even on an opinion site. It's personal taste, apples and oranges.)

comment Is there any real difference between Counterpoint and Polyphony?
Right, not all rennaisance polyphony is counterpoint, not by a long shot. I agree with the first sentence of your first comment -- counterpoint is a type of polyphony.

comment Techniques for memorizing a musical idea and “saving it to paper”
@UlfÅkerstedt, I've done that. :-) (I once asked to borrow a phone so I could call my own voicemail to do this.)

Hi again. Did you ever get a chance to ask around? Thanks.

comment Key signature for writing in modes other than major and minor
True! (I never played with brass; we had a marching band only, and I played piano. :-) )

comment Key signature for writing in modes other than major and minor
Yes, I wondered about that sort of thing too! Eventually I learned. :-) (While I learned to play music from a young age, I didn't actually learn any music theory until college -- at which point I realized how much I'd been missing out on.)

comment High D on Tenor Recorder
Yes, that's the hole I was talking about. I'm not a recorder player myself (I play with some), so I thought they were leaving that hole uncovered for the high notes, but maybe they're pinching it. For debugging you might see what happens if you completely uncover it and then start adjusting the pinching from there. Good luck!

comment High D on Tenor Recorder
Sorry if this sounds like "is it plugged in?" tech support, but just to check: you are fully covering the hole on the back for the lower octave and are uncovering it for the upper octave, right?
