comment Is there a minimum of notes and chords i need to determine the key of a song?
@tim: I think this may vary strongly with the kind of music you're into. The figure in my collection is 72%, but 95%, while clearly an estimate, does sound plausible.

comment Band rehearsal: how to lessen the dependency among members for timing and cues?
My argument is that you're tackling the problem from the wrong end. I'd argue not relying on other band members is a flaw rather than a skill. If communication is difficult, for instance due to a lack of monitors, the 'fix' (other than installing monitors) is to communicate better, not to communicate less.

comment Band rehearsal: how to lessen the dependency among members for timing and cues?
"I think that's their weakness, they depend too much on each other for timing and cues." I disagree with this analysis. Independance in timing and cues is indicative of an inexperienced band. Expect every gig to be suboptimal. Many problems can be mitigated in some way, but listening to the rest of the band will always be crucial.

comment In blues, country blues, why don't songwriters get sued for aping the same progressions/tempos/scales as other established blues songs?
I like this answer, but it oversimplifies with the suggestion that the chords of a song are not subject to copyright. That's often true, but not true in general. International copyright law does not simply put lyrics and melodies in one column, chords and rhythms in the other.

comment Chord naming conventions: add2 versus add9
Although Csus2 and Gsus4 use the same notes, the author would not have used the first notation if he had thought of those notes as some G chord, which can hint at a functional difference.
