comment Guitar choosing
I don't think you should focus on having your guitar tuned by default, since (1) you can do it yourself with a guitar tuner (they come cheap) (2) you'll eventually have to retune your guitar every once in a while.

@Babu: Strange, I don't have that problem. Here are the links anyway. V1: i.stack.imgur.com/57FWv.png and V2: i.stack.imgur.com/WWAYc.png

comment Should pedals be used when playing classical piano music?
Can you point to your sources? I haven't played classical music in a very long time, but I recall countless pieces that explicitly instructed the performer to rely on pedals. As to whether modern classical pianists do use them, a quick search for recent classical competitions on YouTube should help you answer that.

comment In what order should I learn all the theoretical concepts for piano?
I'd rather try and find pieces I enjoy hearing and that sound like I could learn something new from them and derive some partial order from that instead of trying to be so exhaustive. I fail to see the point of the latter approach; but then that's just me.

comment Piano technique: Repetitions and oscillations
This is not a piano technique-oriented answer, but as an answer to another question, I advised using a Powerball every now and then to strengthen wrists.

comment How can I get the instrumentals for a song?
@Pacerier: I've tried with mp3s from various sources, some work, some don't, but even with CD's, it doesn't seem to work all the time. You just have to give it a try. I'm interested in hearing back from your trials anyway.

I won't post it as an answer since I never tried, but do those videos on YouTube help?

comment How does the use of tablatures impact one's learning and sight-reading abilities?
@Monica Cellio: Right now I'm tabbing (parts of) The Real Book, but later on I intend to play with people who will just throw a bunch of chords at me and expect me to play based on that. And I wonder whether getting used to "play by numbers" will prevent me from knowing what I'm actually doing -- or should be doing (I'm probably exaggerating, but you hopefully get the idea).

comment What scale is this? ( A B C# D E F G A)
These are exactly the notes from the D minor scale, are you only confused because you start and finish on A? Or am I misunderstanding something?
