I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment Tips on counting and playing odd time signatures
@AlexandreC. True. Spent a week in Crete. Interestingly most of the bazouki music on restaurant CD players was in "easy" time signatures, but when we had live musicians "work out the time signature" became an interesting game.

comment Why do notes have multiple names?
I describe "the alphabet rule" although I have never heard it called that before. Will update to name it. I infer from the wording of the question that harmonic function, tetrachords etc. are way too advanced for the questioner's level.

@MatthewRead Really? I think from "So to your question" to the horizontal line, is the answer, at the questioner's level. Below the HR is there for pedants.

Bottom E on a guitar is E2. So your range is G2 to G5.
