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.

comment Spectrum of brass tones of same fingering
"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.

comment What are some chord substitutions for a I-IV-V blues progression?
I'm with @luserdroog. The description I got of tritone subs is to just replace the bass tone with one a tritone apart. For example, instead of playing G13 (G-F-A-B-E), play Dbalt by just changing the bass (Db-F-A-B-E). The good thing about that is that the bassist can do that, and the chord player does not even need to be aware of it.

comment Why is the left hand stave missing from the piano sheet music?
I recommend getting one of the books from Mark Levine: "The jazz theory book", and "The jazz piano book".

comment Why is the left hand stave missing from the piano sheet music?
@luserdroog: I see, ok. One way to see it is that chords really call for scales, rather than being just a few selected tones. 6/9 calls (generally) for a major scale, and is therefore often substituted to maj7, maj9, ... 13 calls (generally) for a major scale with lowered seventh (mixolydian scale), and is therefore often exchangeable with 7, 9 chords.

I'd play the fifth as well in a 6 chord. And 13-no-11 should include the minor seventh, which 6/9 wouldn't. Did I misunderstand you? Maybe that was just what you were trying to say.
