I ain't afraid of a few sharps or flats. Club

    I am not a kb player so I am not physically limited by the instrument I play.
    I believe that "spelling" is important in music so Cb & B are not the same note, same goes for E# & F.
    Mode music has a place.
    I can play other music on a fretless
    And my favorite song is Joe Crocker,s A little help from my friends

    Not sure,
    Never tried 575 time. Although NM has 575 as an area code.

    The crockers were a pirate family close friends of Jose Gaspar and sailed out of Tampa bay. They added an R to the family name to avoid spell checker and autocorrect problems. Their sabres were kept sharp.
    Joe used the old spelling when he played air guitar, as he was embrassed to omit the liked to play bass better.

  7. I don't bother playing sharps and flats. They're not really necessary unless you want to get all wishy-washy and artsy-fartsy.

    1) Tone wise, Cb and B are the same note. The audience doesn't care how you spell that.

    2) There never was a "Betty Crocker". She was made up.....pure marketing.

  10. Notes that can be called by 2 or more names are called Enharmonics. F sharp and G flat are Enharmonics--they represent the same pitch, but they are certainly not interchangeable. Notational conventions prohibit mixing sharps and flats in diatonic music, unless they are accidentals.

    As to your other points, I think it's unfair to say a keyboard limits its player, but others are limit free, and modal music does have its place.
