comment What instrument is this and why is it held so strangely and played?
Also note that the Baroque trumpet is usually tuned to A = 415, which is a half-step lower than the modern A = 440. Thus it sounds to your ear like the trumpet is playing in the key of D-flat and not D-natural.

comment What instrument is this and why is it held so strangely and played?
The authentic Baroque trumpet, or natural horn, has no valves and no vents. Therefore it is possible to play it with one hand. It can only play the pitches of the D major scale; because there are no valves or vents, it is not possible to use the instrument to play additional notes or keys outside of D major.

comment Is metallic cogwheel a part of a guitar?
I believe you are referring to a nut which screws onto a bolt, rather than a cogwheel. There is a type of thin nut with a notched border that superficially resembles a cogwheel, but it is not.

Orlando, Florida circa 1995 on the "Talk" tour. Another fan presented them with a sheet music piano-vocal arrangement of "Close to the Edge" that had been printed in the 70s and asked for them to autograph it. They seemed unaware that such a thing had ever been published.

comment Guitar fretboard diagram generators
Somebody voted to close this question because they thought it was not about musical performance or practice. This question certainly IS on-topic. It's about methods of notating and learning fingering patterns for playing guitar, and about studying music theory for guitar. That is what guitar fretboard diagrams are for. They are found in most guitar method books and education programs. This is an extremely valid question.
