comment Does piano and keyboard have any difference?
@jjmusicnotes because acoustic pianos are big, heavy, need tuning, and are more sensitive to humidity. I can't plug headphones into an acoustic piano at 2AM and practice.

@luserdroog sorry about that! I was hosting them in Dropbox and had moved the image. :x

@luserdroog is that available on the tubes somewhere?

comment Why do these two songs seem impressive yet are easy to “sing”
I think the What's Up chorus is easy to belt because of the shape of hey, which is pretty much the entire chorus. It's hard to sing it incorrectly because the pronunciation of the word lends good vocal set up in the same way that the photographer asking you to say 'cheese' makes you smile (somewhat).

@luserdroog, please see my edit. Regarding the switches, I've never played a Jazzmaster that I can recall for certain. I do have this Sears Silvertone Moserite-looking thing that has three similar switches. If they are anything like those, they could be switched accidentally, but not that easily.

comment Playing higher A and B
I hope not. I edited it before @Alex Basson to make them more guitar-like. I didn't do it (I suppose that's obvious) and I doubt Alex did. :\

comment Pop-like creak while tuning strings
When I read the question title, my brain played the sound of cello tuning pegs creaking. When I realized it was an electric guitar, it changed to the pre-climactic musical cranking of my old jack-in-the-box.

comment Need help identifying a scale
That reminds me of Love, Hate, Love by Alice in Chains. I can't seem to determine the key of that song right now but I will investigate later today.

comment How can I learn to sing and play an instrument (like Piano) at the same time?
If you play by ear, you might want to try songs from notable singing pianists, such as Elton John, Joe Jackson, or even Elvis Costello.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
I just looked at your reach chart and measured my own. 7 inches.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
I started playing a full-size Yamaha classical when I was 10. It was the first guitar I ever touched. I am a girl and only grew to 5'2". Sure, it was difficult, but with daily practice, I was playing things like Led Zeppelin's Over the Hills and Far Away pretty quickly.

comment Can legato notes be played staccato?
I got to thinking later that they were something other than legato markings, but it was bedtime.

comment Learning blues piano from music score
I wanted to believe that it wasn't a shopping question, which is why I commented. +1 for another great answer.

comment Learning blues piano from music score
How did you get the classical scores? This one amused me, and I found it with an image search for blues piano sheet music. blogfiles.wfmu.org/DP/2007/07/images/202_img_01.jpg

comment Playing Andy Timmons' Electric Gypsy on Electric Guitar
If you have never tried harmonics, I think it is worth plucking them on an acoustic as well a la Roundabout.

comment How did “Mary had a little lamb” become popular blues?
This may not exactly answer your question, but I found it an interesting read on the subject. EDIT: Check this out as well. :)
