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 How to find your vocal range using the guitar?
Bottom E on a guitar is E2. So your range is G2 to G5.

comment Is there a gigantic dataset with songs and chords I can download?
Those public-created chord sheets are copyright infringements too. Every now and again, they get made to take them down. I think the industry recognises that it's harmless, but they have to make an effort every now and again, or they risk losing their copyright ownership.

comment Are there guitar strings for very high tunings?
Yeah, this is a good answer based on the knowledge that we can predict the pitch for a given gauge and tension - so pick a typical guitar tension, and choose the gauge that will give the desired pitch at that tension. But you also need to know whether the string will withstand that tension, and that's not specified in the D'Addario catalogue at least.

First instinct: no. Second instinct: if at all, only on the "dark" web because these things are copyrighted.

comment Where along the strings to pick?
We can tell you "brighter near the bridge", "boomier near the neck". But the way to decide which is better for you for a given piece, is to try it, listen, and do what sounds best to you.
