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 Choosing an electro-acoustic guitar
+1, great answer. I would take issue with the "tuned snare" part -- it's true, but only if the guitar is played in a certain style.

comment Which fret do I place a capo on, to play Eb music using C chords?
@Tim novices learn a non-barred 4 string F shape (presumably for playing along with their novice-pianist friends).

@BobBroadley I think it's better to have an unambiguous question, even if it's not what the OP meant! All the answers are general enough to still apply if OP wants to transpose in the other direction. And thanks for the +1

Question states (we think!) that she wants to play C shapes. Downtuning by one requires using E shapes. If arbitrary (but easy) shapes are OK, then I'd say capo 1st fret and play D shapes.

comment Still Major Intervals?
@Tim OK, but if you're that strict, other methods described in this page fail. And at A level they're not going to differentiate between A# and Bb.

comment Still Major Intervals?
Just count the semitones. Nothing else matters. The way described here works fine. Whatever other method you settle on works too, as long as effectively you're counting semitones.

comment Line6 pod hd500x or a different processor?
Welcome to music.se. I voted to close, as the FAQ explains, specific equipment recommendations are off-topic because they go out of date quickly. However the manual for the HD500X is at uk.line6.com/data/6/0a06434c6fb051e03e8ab63dc/application/pdf/… and explains MIDI out.
