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 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...

comment I bought a guitar transducer (external pickups). How do I mount it for the best sound?
The "Internal mounting instructions" are what they say they are. If you want to mount externally, then just ignore those instructions. @Matthewread I suggest you remote the "old idea" section. It just distracts from the correct answer above.

comment What is good software for learning how to sight-read?
@11684 If you've never heard the tune before, and just have a score to read, how do you know how it should sound? Only through skill at sight reading.

comment How to identify the root note of a chord
Sub-bass = "deeper than a human can hear"; ultra-sonic = "higher than a human can hear". To play a chord containing all the Cs, just hold down every C on the keyboard (you may need help, as two hands is not enough).
