I'm a developer for pay and a guitarist for fun.

comment Two electric guitars on one amp
There's ABY pedals. I used a friend's Morley, but really only as A/B. My worry would be that you'll have headroom problems, but I've not played with this, so I don't know.

comment Learning to play bass guitar: Fretless vs Fretted
I'm given to understand Robert Trujillo is custodian of Jaco Pastorius' Bass of Doom for the Pastorius Family and sometimes plays it out. Good for him and the family. Another name on the fretless rock bassist list.

comment Should I get my guitar re-set up when changing string brands, but not gauges?
I just hit the up, but the core of a setup is setting the intonation, and you can do that (more than likely) with a long phillips-head screwdriver and an electronic tuner. The action shouldn't be too different, so you don't need to adjust saddle height or the truss rod, much less change the nut.

comment How to know if it's a mode or scale?
I'm thinking that there's nothing guitar-specific about this question, so "guitar" should be tossed off as a tag.

comment How to tune open strings of the violin with a tuner?
I barely qualify as a beginner with the violin -- much more solidly in the "violin owner" category -- but it strikes me that when they talk about "intonation", they're really talking about what your fingers and ears do, not what the open strings are tuned to.
