comment Home recording: Preamp or Dynamic Mic?
Many condenser mics can use a battery, when phantom power isn't available. You still need XLR, but that's another matter.

comment Is it normal for most people to play root or inverted chords?
On guitar very few chords are straight triads starting on the root. Novices play inversions because the easy fingerings are often inversions. Experts play inversions because they sound good.

comment Use only - 3 strings on six string guitar - which ones would you use and how would you tune them?
It's an interesting question, but it's wrong for this site because it's completely subjective. Ask somewhere where you can have a lively discussion.

Put it where you would want an audience to be.

comment How to mic an upright piano to record singing and playing?
I think close micing/internally micing a piano is reasonable in a few circumstances (1) in live situations where feedback and sound leaks must be avoided (2) if you want to experiment with the effected sounds that come from close-micing (3) if you're recording the piano from loads of mics and intend to painstakingly mix the result to get the effect you want (and in this case you'd also mic the room). If you want a natural sounding piano, though, with the least hassle, just mic the room.

comment Looper app for iPad?
As well as an audio interface, you'll probably want a MIDI foot switch. You don't want to have to let go of your instrument to control Loopy.

comment How important is string-muting when playing the bass?
There is no "right" way, but the way most books/teachers teach, you don't use your thumb, and you pluck with two-to-three fingers. I'm ill-disciplined and use my thumb a lot. A thumb pluck sounds quite different to a finger pluck.

Play without muting. Do you like what you hear? If so, carry on. If not, mute.
