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 When playing in a minor key, will the chords be minor as well?
Ok, two comments mean I have to add a footnote. But again, look at the question: when Dennis asked, he didn't understand how a piece in D minor might contain an F major chord -- dominants are something to learn about another day.

comment How does one keep roto toms in tune?
It seems to me that the design of the tuning mechanism will vary from model to model, and this is a question for the customer support of whoever made yours. They should stay in tune.

comment Are there any benefits of using a Capo?
@iamcreasy - belated answer but, imagine you're playing guitar and singing, and find yourself saying "wow, I can't sing that low". So you try singing an octave higher, but then hit a different note and think "wow, I can't sing that high". You need to sing the song somewhere between those two pitches, so the guitar is going to have to transpose to suite you.

comment Why is my voice lower pitched when I get up in the morning?
Are you sure you can also reach higher pitches later in the day? Or just not reach as low?

Made question less conversational. Replaced "frequency" with "pitch".
