comment How do I stop a sensitive microphone picking up breathing when recording acoustic guitar?
Or if you can't prevent it, get a second mic for your mouth (on a different track) and then use wave-cancellation to remove your breathing from the main track. :-)

Women should take notice of head voice vs. chest voice too.

comment What characterises Irish drumming?
Triplets! The bodhran's double-headed beater is optimized for this rhythm.

comment Should a new band seek every possible opportunity to play or just work towards a few big shows?
Varying the show is important if you play frequently for the same audience. I've seen bands that bored the heck out of people on concert #2 ("we heard this show last week"), and ones that could play weekly for a year and never bore anybody because they had (a) lots of repertoire and (b) different ways of presenting some of the same songs. Your fans will come anyway (to a point), so they're not the ones to use as gauges. It's the people who aren't yet fans that you need to reach, and they've got lots of things to do other than listen to you so you've got to keep it fresh.

comment What's the difference between sixteenth century counterpoint and eighteenth century counterpoint?
@ReinaAbolofia that said, universities sometimes have separate classes in 16th- and 18th-c counterpoint. (I've taken the former but not the latter.)

comment What's “species counterpoint”? Are there any other types of counterpoint?
Well, it's a method used by modern composers of counterpoint and taught in universities. Do we know that anybody used these methods in the renaissance/baroque periods?

comment Can anyone learn to sing higher?
+1 Even if you can't afford to take lessons long-term, a few lessons for diagnostics and some of the basics will serve you well.

comment Quickly flip a page of sheet music while playing
@Benoit plastic sleeves are great for the friction problem, but beware glare from unfortunately-placed lights. Get the sleeves with the matt finish to mitigate this.

I often see them notated in parentheses, which is a big help.
