@RockinCowboy, that was a "typo" on my part. I'll correct it.

comment Why is the guitar tuned like it is?
Actually you can easily do both with one guitar. Going from "straight fourths" to "standard" only involves re-tuning two strings by a half-step. It only takes a couple of seconds. That's what I do.

comment Why does rock music use higher fret alternatives on guitar?
Classical guitars in general only have access to the first 12 frets. A classical guitar with a cutaway for access to the higher frets (as on an electric guitar) is a recent innovation. Consequently classical music for guitar tends to be composed and arranged with only 12 frets in mind.

comment There is something common in these but what?
I would say that these are all contemporary pieces heavily patterned after Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (1801). en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano_Sonata_No._14_(Beethoven)

@chx, are you a pianist? On this site we help music students learn to play their instruments. If you are asking more as a music fan, and not as someone who wants to learn to play these kinds of pieces on the piano, we have another site for that: StackExchange Music Fans. Perhaps this question should be migrated to that site instead? musicfans.stackexchange.com

This is hardly confined to rock music. In most styles of music, guitarists make use of all the frets accessible on the fingerboard of their instrument. Why would they not?

comment Piano vs Guitar Strings? Tension vs length?
@dwoz, I was not attempting to provide a comprehensive answer to the original question. I was trying to add supplimental information to the other answers already given here (which I upvoted) by discussing an aspect of the issue that nobody else had thought of. Sometimes it takes more than one answer on this site to cover the entire question, and various people who make their own contribution.

comment Yellow submarine sounds slightly off-tune
The link you have provided is of a cover band doing their own version of the Beatles song. If this cover band is out of tune or not, I do not much care.

comment Why evil themes are prevailing in heavy metal?
I don't know how to migrate a question to another stack. This would be a better fit for the "Music Fans" site.
