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

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 List of Fourier coefficientes to simulate musical instruments
I'll migrate this over to sound design - be aware that your additive model doesn't take into account attack, decay etc.

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)

I have changed the dupe link - think this one is more of a canonical.

David - if you are the same David who originally posted this, you appear to have set up two separate accounts here. You can request for the two to be merged (check the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page) so you get the benefit of the reputation points earned.

comment Understanding metal guitar music writing structure
The unclear bit was that you mentioned tuning, successfully writing guitar tracks etc - very different things. Okay - that is waaaaay too broad then. There is no "guitar music structure" - there are many different genres, all of which use different structures. use @cyco130's answer as a possible starting point, but there is no fast-track to being able to do this. If you want to play/write guitar - you need to learn guitar.

comment Understanding metal guitar music writing structure
Not sure what you are asking. If you are just wanting to understand guitar music, I'd suggest learning guitar as the only solution. Can you clarify what you mean.

OK - it just rang bells so I thought I should mention it
