comment Algorithms for music composition
As a programmer learning to compose, the whole point of exploring algorithmic composition is not to replace the composer, but to better understand music, human perception, the basic rules and some of the principles and workflows used by composers to create music. Given enough algorithms and guiding rules used by composers to explore, I might finally be able to come up with my own understanding of what works and what doesn't, and perhaps be able to devise my own workflows and principles of composition.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
I'm by no means dead set on electric. It's just that electric guitars are usually have thinner necks and hence are easier/more comfortable to play.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
Angus Young small hands? Smallish? Yeah. Small? No. Significantly bigger than mine. I'm really afraid I'm not gonna be able to play unless its 3/4. I hate doing all sorts of acrobatic tricks - having to move hands all over the place like a madman with inhumane agility, speed and precision just to play simple things, whereas player with decently sized hands doesn't have to move hands at all (I've had plenty of that on piano).

Here a good picture of hand sizes: steinbuhler.com/assets/images/HandSizePage_12.gif ( I have ~7 inch reach. Yeah. ) That basically is a super-small, 12 year old boy(girl?) hand.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
I think there's misconceptions about what I mean with super-small-hands. Smalls hands doesn't mean the hands are just not that big, or that they are wee-bit on smallish-side. For the record, in piano players world small hands usually mean you can reach from C to E. I mean there's really no point in playing if your hands are any smaller than that unless you're willing to seriously limit yourself and your repertoire. Even with C to E reach you'll have extremely hard time playing significant amount of pieces.

"so there's a wide neck to allow you to fret one string without accidently sounding on another" - yeah, but if the finger is small, that might not be an ussue, no?
