comment Keep file in a Git repo, but don't track changes
As per Junio Hamano (the maintainer of Git): "Assume-unchanged should not be abused for an ignore mechanism. [...] it is not a promise by Git that Git will always consider these paths are unmodified---if Git can determine a path that is marked as assume-unchanged has changed without incurring extra lstat(2) cost, it reserves the right to report that the path has been modified (as a result, "git commit -a" is free to commit that change)." In other words, assume-unchanged is just for local performance issues. If Git can determine that those files changed in a lighter way, it will.

comment How to play Tabla in a music composition?
I've seen this in the past with tabla students that have studied for so many time with teachers, they know thekas, kaydas, etc. and play them well, but then they didn't knew what to do when they came to play with me (I play sitar). I don't know why that happens at all. Best thing I can say is, do it the way you feel. You don't need any answer to tell you how to do it, specially if that was not done in the past. It seems you're having a general doubt about it and I would say go and try stuff and hear how it sounds and how you feel about it. More specific questions will arise from that. Best!

comment Difference between equal temperament and just intonation
Don't get overly confused by statements made in online resources (like the statement that Just Intonation is the same as Pythagorean tuning). It's been repeated a lot online that Indian Classical Music uses Just Intonation, but the truth is that it's not just like that, not for the music of north India (hindustani sangeet) nor southern (karnataka) music. I went that way tuning my sitar frets to JI ratios in the beginning, but didn't worked. It's a very debatable topic and depends on style of playing, raga, mood, artist, gharana, etc. If interested, follow the research works of Wim Van Der Meer

comment Where should I go to learn about non-Western scales (particularly Turkish & Greek)
What do you mean with "where should I go"? I know of a few music institutions in Greece where you can learn Greek and Turkish music (and even some other world music). If you're asking for texts, or suggestions in finding a teacher (which I highly suggest), that's another thing.
