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.

I don't think "cough up the proper share of any earnings" is correct because it implies that if you earn nothing, you owe nothing. The copyright owner sets the terms by which you are allowed to use the work. In many cases they take royalties managed by bodies like the PRS, but not always.

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.

Harder to bend accurately, and easier to bend by accident!

comment What pitches for singing “Movable Do”?
In A major, movable 'doh' is always A. A might be 440Hz, but isn't always -- see music.stackexchange.com/a/23303/1252
