Welcome. Always worth reading the suggestions given to you when you write a question, as well as the Related sidebar to the right :-)

comment Clef between a beam? proper notation?
Nachmen - rather than have a go at Neil, you could have pointed the OP at the search box...

comment Clef between a beam? proper notation?
Neil - I thought you weren't being nasty. It was a bit terse though.

comment Clef between a beam? proper notation?
All - have reopened. This is similar, but different to that core one, as the OP is asking about the clef under the beam.

comment Why do I get electric shock from my guitar when I touch the floor?
Okay, that makes sense. If you have old plugs it would be a concern.

comment Why do I get electric shock from my guitar when I touch the floor?
Not sure about this - it may have been the case long ago, but the UK plugs are considered the safest on the planet now, due to separation and isolation of the various wires, and the strain relief. Sure, you can still break a cable, as with any, but it's very visible now.

comment Why evil themes are prevailing in heavy metal?
Wheat - you can use a flag, and "other" which lets you write a comment the mods get to see.

comment Musicians Unions In The Modern Day
Over here, any public venue that hosts bands has to pay the PRS/PPL so you will get royalties. PRS are very good at taking venues to court if they don't pay :-)

comment Musicians Unions In The Modern Day
No - you don't need to be part of a union to get royalties. The PRS and PPL are royalties collection organisations, like ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC in the US

Correct - I'll add that in to the post. Thanks.

comment Guitar-usb interface vs External sound card (very low budget)
The one major difference is with powered external USB cards - their signal to noise ratio is dramatically improved

comment Sound card for both recording and listening
In that case, a good external card is likely to help, yes.

comment Sound card for both recording and listening
Decent: £100 to £200, but prosumer is more like £500-£800. Regarding your hum, currently your guitar, the lead and the amp will all pick up hum. You can't do much about this other than use humbuckers and practice further away from sources of mains interference because guitars use unbalanced leads (unless you are lucky enough to have a guitar with a balanced XLR... Rare) - but you can improve the resistance to further interference, and yes, an external sound card does help with this.

comment Is there a “standard” or “typical” drum kit layout?
Charlie - this seems more of a rant and pure opinion. Imagine if I said, "You need 5 toms, because otherwise if you are rolling down them and the 5th note is missing. What, play the 4th wrong note twice." What the OP is asking for is the 'standard' layout - and the top answers have listed the most common standard layouts. Have a read of our tour and How to Answer pages to understand how this site works, and what we need in answer posts.

comment Guitar tuning: Facing problems with High E string
Can you explain what you mean - do you mean you have already tuned the guitar, starting at the high E and working down to the low E, and when you check the high E it is out of tune (in which case Tetsujin's answer applies perfectly) or are you asking something else?

You can post excerpts of other web pages in here as long as it is just an excerpt, and you give a reference/link back to the original site. You can use the quote tool in the post editor to show it is a quote

comment Can I use a DI Box to practice guitar without an amp?
mipadi - it is just as easy, if not easier, as there are more products on the market for guitars than basses.
