comment Rocktuner CT2 problem
I had to look up some info on transposing instruments to write my answer here. I have only ever been a singer who plays a bit of guitar and even less piano, and I have never worked with a transposing innstrument myself, although I have done some copyist work on orchestral scores that require taking this into account.

comment How can I tell when music is live and not recorded?
I do not know a scientific answer to this question, but I have always been fascinated by it, because I can tell the difference easily as well.

comment Rocktuner CT2 problem
I made a couple of comments that jjmusicnotes thought were patronizing to him, and I apologised and deleted them. All this happened during StackExchange being taken down by a DDoS attack yesterday, so even getting to the site and adding comments was difficult.

comment Rocktuner CT2 problem
Sorry, @jjmusicnotes, I was not intending to be patronizing. I was just as surprised as you to find out that this tuner, while sold by the Warwick bass guitar company and labeled "Rocktuner" actually seems to be designed for transposing orchestral instruments. And I am neither a composer nor a professor; I'm just an avid amateur musician, so I defer to your superior knowledge.

comment Putting Stickers on an acoustic guitar
I disagree. Most acoustic guitars these days are finished with a very durable and thick polyurethane or polyethylene finish. In this case putting on and removing stickers does no harm to the finish. Try removing a small part of one sticker and see if you can detect any damage to the guitar's finish or any discoloration. If there is none, then it should be safe to remove the rest of the stickers if you want to. A commercial solvent that is designed to remove the adhesive on stickers, such as Goo-Gone, is useful for this purpose. googone.com
