comment Solo's on the 12 bar blues in A
“After all, there are only 12 notes” – I rather disagree. Blues guitar uses microtonality all over the place.

comment Why does software-synthesized MIDI music sound so bad?
“MIDI has been surprisingly adept and has required little revision over the last 30+ years” welll... I'd put it less flatteringly: people have developed ever more workarounds to compensate for the inadeptnesses of MIDI, because nobody could be bothered to implement a proper replacement standard.

comment A shape barre chord up-strum issue
@ToddWilcox: I wasn't being entirely serious about the “correct”, but I do think that the four-finger version is superiour in most situations (and if you have difficulties with it, it's probably an indicator that something isn't quite right with you left hand position).

comment What is the term for a song without a tempo?
Welcome to Music.SE! Rubato is a relevant term in this context, and may even be what the OP had in mind. But note that strictly speaking there's still a fixed tempo with rubato – only, not every single beat is actually played on time; rather you fall behind in one place and take up tempo in another.

comment How can I practice clarinet quietly?
Would you consider trying a wind controller? That's completely quiet.

comment A shape barre chord up-strum issue
How about getting used to the, ahem, correct way to play A-shape chords – with one barre plus three fingers? (Regardless, it would still be a good idea to practise missing the top string on purpose, but you shouldn't really need it.)

comment Connect digital piano to interface
They're balanced if they're TRS (i.e. 3 contacts like on a headphone plug, not just two like on a guitar cable).

comment Why do I need to change chords throughout a piece music to make it pleasant to listen to?
Pretty much. You don't have to change chords but it may sound plain boring if you don't. If you do, it provides a sense of direction and finality in the music and can avoid dissonance between melody and harmony.

True, nobody after him was ever able to pull off pedal points quite as well as Bach used to!

Are you sure you meant to refer to Mary Jane? It is a pretty amazing song, but it doesn't exactly stay on the same harmony all the time. Perhaps one of the rhythm guitars stays on something G-like, but I don't really hear it.
