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 12 String Guitars - Some Information?
That would be a pretty arbitrary choice. Bear in mind a "high E" on a guitar is 2 octaves higher than the "low E". Buy sets of strings specced for 12 string - e.g. stringsdirect.co.uk/products/… -- or copy the gauges from one. In this case 10, 10; 14, 14; 22, 08; 30, 12; 40, 18; 50, 26

comment What is good software for learning how to sight-read?
@11684 If the player can stay within the scale (particularly easy, for, say, a beginner pianist playing in C major), there's not much of a way to tell. Unless of course, your aim is to play what YOU think sounds nice, rather than what's written.

comment Tips and tools to help transcribing a bass line in tablature
If you can't hear what note it is in the original, does it matter which note you transcribe? ;)

comment Finding the right rhythm for a tune
@Babu The Pet Shop Boys song Left To My Own Devices includes the lyric "Che Guevara and Debussy to a Disco Beat", and the 12" "Disco Mix" takes the opportunity to do just that. youtube.com/… -- only for a couple of bars unfortunately.

comment Tuning a tuning fork?
There should be a frequency marked on the tuning fork itself. Trust that, not the box.

Why don't you want to anchor? It works...
