First of, you're using the join method wrong. To use the join method, you're meant to specify a separator string (a string which will separate each element in a list) first then call the join method on that string passing in the the given list. You can read more about join here - https://appdividend.com/2019/01/31/python-string-join-example-python-join-method-tutorial/. Secondly, I'd recommend naming your for loops iterator values something with meaning as x & y is hard to distinguish the meaning they have. With that being said, this is what I got:

for group in musical_groups:
    print(", ".join(group))
