comment I need help for information on my acoustic guitar
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is not about Music practice or theory. Sorry - we don't do instrument identification questions.

comment Is learning guitar good without knowing how to sing?
sneha - are you asking if singing will help guitar playing? Or if you can do both at once?

comment Happy songs in minor keys and vice versa
Hi Neil - we have had a range of questions on this topic previously. All suggest that this is entirely a construct of western culture. Personally I have no connection between sad and minor, or happy and major - they are entirely independent for me.

comment Problems tuning an old Egmond acoustic with floating bridge
can you post a couple of photos online? We can link them into your post. Ideally one from your eyeline when playing the guitar, one looking down on the front of the guitar, and one from behind the bridge, so we can more easily see the problem

Darren - I always assume an X here would mean 'don't play' not 'mute'

comment Do song lyrics need to be complicated and have hidden meaning?
Totally agree! One of our songs has verses that are simply about writing verses of a song, and choruses made up of random words...then the lot translated into German via Japanese through Google translate. Sounds great. Means nothing. Audiences love it! youtube.com/watch?v=C1ySudzIZGA

comment How can I produce any melody on my guitar as effortlessly as I do with my voice?
interestingly, I have exactly the opposite view on this - as I learned violin, then guitar way before piano, I find it obvious where notes are going to be on stringed instruments, but really difficult on a piano, with its odd key spacings etc. Even on my guitars with odd tunings, I find a third or a fifth a simple visualisation.

comment How to obtain a Clean yet Distorted guitar sound?
American metal type pedals are often based around a simple pair of opposed diodes, which basically gives you a square wave output with very sharp edges. Tailor that with a low pass filter to take off the harshest harmonics and you can get a really smooth clean distortion.

comment What should I practice before getting into the chords
Rajeev - mastering 3 chords may be one day, or it may be weeks. Don't worry about that - everyone is different. As regards getting into chords, often chords are the first thing people learn.

Chet - see my first sentence. On my setup I can get a very similar sound with just that. You need to give us more info about your setup.
