comment Would adding delay after the loadbox make it the same as if adding it in the effects loop?
This answer seems self-contradictory. Did you mean you can put effects almost anywhere except time dependent effects such as delay?

surroundedbyfools - luckily Bart edited this into an okay answer. Next time you will incur a suspension.

comment What genre of music does G3: Vai, Satrianni, Malmsteen represent, what is the name for their guitar tone?
I'm going to migrate this to Music Fans - this is not on topic here. As an aside, the rig all these guys use is public knowledge (eg search Joe Satriani rig) but it is almost irrelevant. Matt is correct - Satriani would sound amazing on my kit, and still have Satriani tone. I would not sound like him on his...

comment Which Blues notes are deliberately flattened?
Your 1st, 3rd and 4th paragraphs are related to the question, but the others could be removed (as they answer a different question) - then I'd upvote.

comment Can I plug my amp directly into my audio interface?
Mauricio - welcome to Music.SE. So far it seems you haven't quite understood the difference between Stack Exchange and other online forums, as you have made a few posts that don't answer the question, or only supply information others have posted. Can I ask that you please read How to Answer and have a browse around the site to see how the community as a whole works. Thanks.

comment Guitar Pedal Components (DIY)
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because a) you have cross posted, and b) it has nothing to do with theory or practice. I may also close the one on Sound - as it is very opinion based...

comment Which Blues notes are deliberately flattened?
Hi Jay - this isn't answering my question at all. I know the how (have been playing blues for over 25 years)

comment Are the names for these chords valid?
Shomo - Comments are not for extended discussion so I have moved this conversation [ to chat](chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/24294/…). Where you have additional questions, it is better to ask them as questions, referring to the initial question if necessary. And for discussion - use chat.

comment Notes on string high E sounds out of tune even picking them alone
Can you clarify - you think they sound out of tune, but your tuner says they are in tune, right?

comment Singing the words to one song along with the music for another - what is this called?
As I understand it a medley has parts of songs consecutively. I am talking about simultaneously

comment Singing the words to one song along with the music for another - what is this called?
I don't think this is offtopic - I have edited the title to make it more obvious the OP is asking about the technique, not a particular song.

comment Singing the words to one song along with the music for another - what is this called?
When my band plays as it's acoustic alter ego, we usually finish doing this, getting half the audience to sing one of our songs, and the other half singing another song (well, the choruses, anyway) at the same time - and as both of them are in the same key and metre, it works rather well - good fun for all involved.

comment Truth behind Mozart memorizing Miserere and then writing it down later in full
As an aside, for one of our gigs I have had to get a session guitarist in to take my place as I'll be away. Now I know my music is much simpler, but this guy listened to 10 songs straight through and wrote them down after one listening. Almost note perfect! And he is not a savant, just a professional with many years experience as a session musician.

comment What to look for when buying an arranger keyboard / keyboard workstation?
jjmusicnotes - as per various meta conversations, JCPedroza has worded this one to ask for what the key functions/differentiators/etc should be - not for a recommendation on which one to buy. We should be able to allow these sorts of questions for digital and analogue music tools as well as for more traditional instruments.

comment How to prep vocals for a gig?
Nathan - quick query as there appear to be two good but separate questions here. Are you asking how to practice (ie warm up) or how to get over nervousness?

comment When I release a fretted string how do I keep it silent?
A wee extra: you can also damp with other fingers on your left hand. eg if you are lifting off your third finger, have your first or second damp the string.

comment Recording an electric guitar and electric bass
I'd always go USB as well - then you typically have them powered separately if needed (which helps lower the noise floor)

comment Position of white dots in guitar fretboard
Wondering why the 3rd fret doesn't have a dot then - the 3rd fret open natural harmonic is significant, and frequently used across many genres, from Jazz, as you mentioned, to Metal (see the Dimebag Squeal)

comment The practical difference between 2/2 and 2/4 time
I have changed the dupe link - think this one is more of a canonical.
