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 What gauge strings should I use for A# tuning on an electric guitar
The general answer for any tuning is here :music.stackexchange.com/questions/7877/… so the question is effectively a duplicate.

comment What are the ABRSM graded examinations, and why would one want to take them?
Confused about these comments: the answer says that you wouldn't join the MU after doing grade 8. However I bet there's professional rock musician MU members who couldn't pass any exam that requires reading a score

comment Perfect pitch and tuning forks
It might be worth clearly demonstrating that you are tuning though. By analogy, when you take a driving test, you make big head movements every time you look in the mirror. "Wouldn't it be more impressive to look in the mirror just with small eye movements?" -- maybe, but the tester needs to know for sure you're looking.

Nobody at an audition should care how you tune your instrument, as long it actually is in tune.
