    I got a score of 9. I’ve been playing bass guitar professionally for 44 years and run a performing arts center and I hadn’t heard of most of these terms before. Looks like I have some learning to do. This was fun.

    You have the wrong definition for Pentimento for your quiz.

    Pentimento is visual information that is left over from the past.

    For example: You’ll see faded signs painted on the sides of old brick buildings along with newer paint. On a painting you might have painted over an old painting and texture or colors from the previous incarnation will show up in the newer painting on the previously used surface.
