My main instrument is the trumpet, I have classical training but switched to jazz 10 years ago. I play in a big band, and a funk-pop band.

I can play some piano, and find my way around on a guitar. I have also composed some choir music and played with sequencers.

I like typography (including music notation), and music theory.

Wow, how could you guess that OP was looking for power chords? Impressive.

comment Scale modification in sus2 and sus4 chords
This is not my point. My point is that in a sus chord, the third is replaced by the fourth. In an aug chord, the fifth is modified (not replaced) but is still a kind of fifth.

comment Trying to program a piano staff/stave. Is this what it's supposed to look like?
I have yet to see any printed material with circles (or rather discs), I have only seen that in beginners' handwriting.

comment Four dotted sixteenths in a triplet
Maybe it is the software tool that he is using that tries to be too smart? I guess the rhythm in another voice may have disturbed this one, say if another instrument does play a triplet.

comment Scale from Hungarian Rhapsody No.2
Why would you discard mixolydian b6? I think that is the correct answer.

"While playing the C the horn is perfectly capable of reproducing an E, your lips just don't excite it." I suppose you mean "reproducing a D", don't you?

comment Spectrum of brass tones of same fingering
You mean that the series of notes played with the same fingerings are actually not harmonics, but that the horns are designed in such a way that in only resembles it? I have heard this before, of someone who actually built an instrument to demonstrate it, but I was a bit sceptical to that demonstration.

comment Scale modification in sus2 and sus4 chords
Worth noting is that the note changes name in a sus chord and not in an aug chord (Csus compared to C has an F instead of E. Caug compared to C has a G# instead of a G, but it is still a G). The difference is changing a note to another, versus giving an alteration to one of the tones.

comment Piano tuning just under the absolute pitch
Good thinking about the crystal precision, but 15 cents off is too large for that. 15 cents at the 440 Hz A is an offset of around 4 Hz, that is 0.1 %. A crystal in the iPhone should be at worst +/- 20 parts per million (ppm), 0.1 % would be outrageous. That said, I wouldn't trust the writers of the app to give that level of precision, even if the hardware should.

@Luke: just as the E is better played 12 than 0 on some models, but that is not the point. The point is that you can play what looks like the components of the harmonics series without changing the fingering. I could have asked about a clarion.
