comment Using alternative tunings
@What OTOH Never Goin' Back Again by Fleetwood Mack; All I Want by Joni Mitchell. Generally, anything difficult in Standard Tuning (eg. stacked-thirds) can be made easier with an Alternate (eg. tune to all-thirds).

comment Goldberg Variation 28, right hand 4/5 trills
Looking more closely, I'd call this a tremolo rather than a trill, but all the answers from the other question still appear to apply. If the questions are merged, I'd prefer the one with the image, regardless.

I like this suggestion. Anything from that Eddie Vedder album is sure to impress.

comment What are the various methods of tuning the guitar?
If you tune to major, you can raise the 5th of the chord to a 6th to produce a minor chord. Still one finger change, but it makes major chords easier.

comment Does playing in scale mean only using notes from that scale?
One glaring counterexample is the guy from Primus who deliberately plays all the wrong notes!

Anybody know how to get a bar-line | in there? ... or repeats?

comment How can I toughen up my fingertips?
That might be a good alternative to my razor blade technique for adding traction to hard pads, but for developing the calluses, the thumbnail/key seems like the best: it mimicks the action of pressing on strings. I'd give you +1 if you narrow this to "for roughing up the surface" rather than building the callus.
