comment How does the guitar demonstrate volume?
Excellent answer! Having made various guitars over the years, I'd suggest the OP go with an electric guitar. Acoustic guitars are incredibly difficult to make, as the entire body (shape, choice of wood, thickness of wood, sound holes etc) determines the sound, volume, tone and sustain, whereas an electric guitar can be successfully made from a plank of wood...

I love my 7 string guitars for this exact reason - easy to go down to an A or lower :-)

comment I want to know about this guitar. it's real yamaha product or fake?
This is not a good topic here - it is not theory and practice, and while this particular instance may be quite obvious, some fakes are so good it is difficult for experts to tell the difference even when they have them in their hands. Not a good fit for an online Q&A site, and not a good fit with our site scope.

comment Vibrato on the viola
We got taught it at a very young age as an essential part of how you play every note - before you learn where notes are on a violin, there is a lot of sliding into place, and that is used as a direct start to the vibrato. (I was a Suzuki technique, and this was 40 years ago, so I may be slightly mistaken...)

Tim - you just work on damping the others. It works reasonably well.

comment Playing what you hum or whistle on the violin
Antonio - your question may need editing then, as it doesn't say anything about imitating the human voice. Practice will help you be able to play any note you can sing - it becomes second nature, whether or not the note holds to Western temperament.

comment Best Way to “Learn” Jazz Piano
Actually - the one common thread you will see across Music.SE is Find yourself a good teacher - this works when you are a beginner, but also whenever you are stuck or need a new direction.

comment Slide guitar tuning
As an aside - my 12 string acoustic had suffered a major accident before I got it - the entire head was snapped off, and had to be reglued. I tend to now keep it in a standard D tuning, just in case the glue and pins fail. So far, so good :-)
