comment Do musicians count the meter all the time?
This feels like a rant, and doesn't seem to add anything new that other answerers have already posted.

Tim - I have edited to try and help focus on the chord progression, not the actual song.

That's what I often see, yes. The chord matches the scale.

comment What does a pair of long horizontal lines between two whole notes mean?
Yes - it is the guitars sweep picking and tapping.

comment What does a pair of long horizontal lines between two whole notes mean?
From the actual track, no, the guitars don't appear to be going through arpeggios at that point. There is some sweep picking and some tapping. The symbols don't represent that at all. Maybe the analyst couldn't figure out what they were playing - based on the rest of that video I'd be pretty certain that is the case.

comment Lightest gauge strings for a 12-string acoustic?
Kamakiri - I wouldn't place an advert. I'd go to a reputable music shop and ask them who they use. Otherwise you'll get any number of people contacting you, and no guarantee as to their experience or skill.

comment How do I make a guitar string easier to bend?
Yep - it's tension that is the issue. Remember, you can push the E right through the B and beyond. You just need the strength to push 2 or even 3 strings

comment How do I make a guitar string easier to bend?
That's pretty good. I tried 8's but went through them way too fast (one a month or so) Now I use 9's and 10's as they last a lot longer. I do a lot of bends though.

comment Is it possible to have “Perfect Tempo”
Some people are demonstrably good at counting seconds, based on knowing their resting pulse, so this should be do-able, but I don't think it is equivalent to Perfect Pitch.
