comment Ranges in the Real Vocal Book
The Real Book is a very different animal from other published sheet music. It's only quite recently that it has had a publisher and editors. For many, many years it existed as an illegal samizdat distribution ("...take this to Kinko's and make 3 Xeroxes..."). So there are legacy issues to contend with, especially if you want to play with a group. Everybody needs to be in the same key.

comment Why should I alternate fingers in this piece?
I agree. The alternate fingering seems prone to introducing a syncopation.

comment How to Write A Ragtime Piano Piece?
Note that Scott Joplin wrote in School of Ragtime that it is not correct to swing. I'm not necessarily saying that anything in this answer should be changed, but that there's historical support for an alternate style. I suspect most audiences won't have a strong opinion either way.

comment Why are the natural notes on the staff special?
@BenZotto The origin of the scale is in the murky depths of history, but this question gets into it.

comment How does one set up a guitar amplifier to produce a rock sound/feel?
I like this answer. A very similar approach is the hacker's frob, twiddle, and tweak.

comment Electric guitar vs classical guitar
As for price, the general rule-of-thumb for guitars is if it's less than $200 you should really wonder why it's less than $200.

comment Remote Performance Workflow
Slightly-less bleeding-edge, I remember reading that Faith No More wrote the songs on their later albums by starting with a keyboard+bass+drums jam (those three lived in the same city) then mailing the tapes to the guitarist then mailing the tapes to the vocalist. This type of "workflow" can be done now with email and ftp and stuff.
