comment Guitar + tremolo = neck bent
Yes - ensure the arm faces the fretboard.

comment Guitar + tremolo = neck bent
For my guitar with a non-removable trem, I always ensure it is in a position so that pressure reduces tension.

comment Guitar + tremolo = neck bent
Quick question: in the case, was the tremolo pulling the strings sharper/tighter? If not, I can't see how it would cause this problem.

comment Composing for Solo Trumpet
Spider - as pointed out by the 5 community members who voted to close, this question is not on topic here. It wasn't laziness - it just doesn't fit this site. Have a quick read of tour and How to Ask for more guidance.

comment What do uncommon time signatures consist of?
Neil - it isn't nonsensical. It exists. You just probably wouldn't use it - having thirds is simpler

comment What do uncommon time signatures consist of?
Neil - I'm afraid you are wrong. You can have any number there. It's very straightforward.

comment What do uncommon time signatures consist of?
It is a ninth as long as a whole note. Just divide by nine

comment Best strings for heavy metal (I love distortion)?
Neil - this question may be popular, but it is not a good question. There is no definitive answer - some folks say thicker strings, some say thinner, I say it doesn't matter but go with what you like. The OP is also asking for brand recommendations - which is a no-no, in fact I'll edit that bit out.

Dwoz - you missed the whole point of my post and focused on the lighter point.

comment How has deafness been incorporated in music history (present included)?
Sarruby - you could have a look at our sister stack, Musicfans. Check out the style of questions there and see if you could post a variant of your question there - it isn't suited for the structure here.

comment Are some scales more instinctive than others?
We already have quite a lot of posts on this topic, and Tim's answer here says it all. It is well documented in the industry - which is why there is no ubiquitous "sad" key or "happy" key, for example.

comment Tuning Acoustic from Drop D to Standard Repeatedly
Humidity changes can cause a lot of problems - tension in the strings, especially on an acoustic, can be dramatically affected by humidity

There is no "instantly" - there is only practice

comment Are some scales more instinctive than others?
While this is an interesting question, it is probably not good here, as there is probably no scale that is more instinctive to everyone - it is entirely down to culture and upbringing. I'll not close just now, will watch the question and see if it needs it

As Carl mentioned, you'd really need to get this answered from their support team.

comment How is the hihat played in the intro to the Donna Summer song “Could It Be Magic”?
Can you be specific as to when this happens in that track - I can't hear any fast hi-hat in that entire track.

comment What is that for a huge bridge on a Les Paul?
One of my Kahler trems is similar in size, but it isn't a Mahler. There doesn't have to be anything special about it - there are a lot of trem variants.
