comment Beginner replacing guitar strings
Ooh, can't wait to see our guitar heads have a go at this question! In the meantime, I would remove just the broken string so that the broken ends don't damage your finish or something by accident. Leave the rest of the strings on--you generally don't want to have all of the strings off at once since that totally releases the tension on your neck and truss rod.

comment Why do musicians prefer to play in certain keys?
@Dave That's why I said "technique considerations related to pitch class".

comment Why do musicians prefer to play in certain keys?
@Dave That is true, but is based on the tessitura of the piece of music, not the key. A piece normally in G, but has notes just outside the range of the singer might be transposed down to Eb, but at the same time, a different piece in Eb that goes too low for the singer might be transposed up to G.

comment A machine for automatic tremolo picking
If OP is talking about the blue LED, then this is definitely it -- my guess is he was running through some kind of effect to give the illusion of tremolo.

comment Instrument range cheat sheets
Just looking over the trombones, I don't find them to be completely accurate -- of course, for middle-of-the-road stuff it will be fine. Sibelius and other notation software you may find yourself using will often alert you when you've written notes near the range extremes.

comment How much time should I put between movements?
Indeed -- I was only alluding to the standard performance practice in use now. Certainly I don't mean to say that's how it should be!
