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 How to check an acoustic guitar is solid top or not?
Why do you care whether it's laminated? Because of the sound. So forget about the reasons for the sound. If you like how it sounds, buy it even if it's laminated. If you don't like how it sounds, don't buy it even if it's solid-top.

comment Is a high A in the key of D flat still flat?
I don't believe that's the reason key signatures were invented -- they avoid unnecessary clutter for the reader.

comment How can I practice in an apartment without annoying the neighbours?
I can't see any reason to spend more. If that means I have cloth ears, then hooray for cloth ears. I've even been complimented on the tone of mine - playing crunchy chords through the Zoom to a clean amp.

Yeah, I use a Zoom multi fx. It works through headphones. It works through a hifi. It works through a PA amp. Very flexible.

It is necessary if you want to work on your tone.

comment Techniques for remembering a pitch without reference
There may still be reference pitches around you. For example, in a typical UK home lots of things are humming quietly at 50Hz.

comment What does it mean to “not have a singing voice”?
This is probably more of an English Language question. It means "I do not have a good singing voice".

comment Can you make your own Leslie Speakers?
Nice answer, but I fundamentally disagree with "the Doppler effect can't be had any other way than physical motion". There is no reason at all why emulation couldn't exactly reproduce a Leslie.

comment Improving my guitar
@Kaz I think it depends on where you place "cheap" and "expensive". I was thinking of a £30 boxwood guitar vs a £250 Cort. Not a £250 Yamaha vs a £2000 Martin. Updating the answer accordingly.
