comment Why is B flat in this key sigiture when B is never played?
Speaking as a working musician who uses notation for traditional folk tunes: Your jab at "simplistic" music aside, modulations away from the basic key should be noted in the notation, either in this staff or other staves in the same work. (If they're not, someone did an incomplete job of transcription.)

It also tells accompanists to use chords that do not contain B natural.

comment Cajon as Alternative to Drum Set?
The percussionist in one of my bands uses a cajon, and it's quite loud. A good cajon, one with a variety of sounds that has an adjustable snare, can easily serve as the main percussion piece of a band.

This seems more like a request to start a discussion. Voting to close, but perhaps the question can be edited to be more directly answerable?

comment How much baroque music was derived from improvisation?
Certainly everything I've written, music and lyrics. Perhaps a better way to ask this would have been "how much of what we consider 'baroque music' is an improvisation that jelled, and how much of it was written in a fixed form from the beginning?" But I think (hope) that my point came across.

comment Incessant Buzzing on Third String (Classical Guitar)
Is this is a recent development, it sounds like a fret wear problem. At least you know which frets you use the most now!

This is off-topic here, I believe. Perhaps migrate it to the AVP site?
