comment What were Chazal referring to when they said there were 7 notes in a musical octave?
@Michoel oh thats what you meant. Well youre right but seemingly each string is for one note. That is why I asked for a source that the Medrash is referring to a scale!

@Michoel in musical terms we refer to notes as a single sound/vibration, and chords as a few notes rightly played at the same time creating a different sound. I assume it must be referring to notes and not chords because there are many more then 8 chords, chords are there to harmonise the notes being played!

comment Pesik Resheih DeLa'Avar (inevitable consequence relating to the past)
@SethJ will check up over Shabbos the location of Reb Moshe. And the Taz and co are specifically talking about Psik Reshe Sheleovar. Perhaps the Sefak Sefeka is an extra part to the Shtickel

comment Touching a woman and the first Pesukim in Melachim
Chas Vesholom to even say he couldn't. The Gemoro (Sanhedrin 22a) relates that Avishag begged David to have relations with her. He refused. She said to him that the reason he refused is because he was too old for it and did not have the strength. David sent for Batsheva his wife to come in, and in front of Avishag had relations with BatSheba 13 times in a row to show to Avishag that it was not from lack of strength that he refrained from having relations with her. Rather he refrained for Halachic mixed will moral reasons.

@Michoel I suspected as much. Appreciate your time!

comment Jewish concept of angels
@msh210 in that case what do you define as free will? Perhaps God is giving them the will so you anyway cant call it free will. Regardless the Yalkut is clearly mashmah that on a usual basis the Malachim have the power to choose but in this special case their power was revoked.

comment Goshen, the most immoral part of Mitzrayim
@sethJ (Rashi says the word Ervah not Tumah). I think it is a bit of both. The Rashi would seem to be more natural and the first vort would seem to be a Hanhagah of Hashem!

agreed, but the only difference between Tehillim is the plural. I doubt that the meaning would have changed. +1 for noting the Nusach Ari, it makes it even more interesing. When was it first printed and what was the format then?
