comment What is a 13th chord?
@VarLogRant: I think you should edit the original text "third and fifth" to say the correct "root and fifth" instead of adding a correction as extra text in the post. It will be better to just leave a comment addressed to gurney alex to say that he is right, and you fixed it in answer. Letting the wrong text standing, might misinform people that does not read the entire thing to the end. By the way - don't leave a comment to answer me - just fix it, and I will remove this comment...

comment Musical notation/tablature for isomorphic instruments
@andrewdotnich: When you say "one tone apart", do you mean as notes in a C major scale, or as half steps as in 12 tone scale?

comment Why does conventional playing style give the string manipulation to the left hand?
@AlexBasson: Yes, there is no doubt this is so for a reason, and there are many proves that it is like this because it is the most natural way, but the question is : Why is this the most natural way to play a guitar? It is actually a good question.

revised Is there a special way to notate a repeat for the right (treble) hand but not the left (bass) hand?

comment Is there a special way to notate a repeat for the right (treble) hand but not the left (bass) hand?
@Luke: Yes, when using double slash, it means repeat two measures unless specified with a number above. I have actually never seen repetition more than 2 measures, but I'm sure it exists. In this example you see that there is also a vertical line across the middle, wich also indicates that there are two measures, but this is how Lilypond does it. I have also seen the double percentage repeat used without the extra measure split line, but it still means repeat two measures.

comment How do you quickly form this C7 shape on guitar?
This is a good answer to why it is difficult on guitar (which is an important one), but there are other answers here which should also get credit, as they give options and advice to how to play it in a manageable way. The final accepted answer should be the one that gives the best "transcription" advice for this.

comment What is the device used to draw 5-line staff (empty) with a pencil/pen?
I don't think you should be too embarrassed at this. You answered the question (It's called a "rastrum"), and gave a proper link for reference. It's not your fault that this question called for a short answer. Your answer was actually more correct than the answer by Nix (he gave examples of products, but neither gave the general name for the thing).

comment On the guitar, if I play a song which is in the key of D, where should I put the capo?
+1 for the last paragraph on music written for an instrument in key of D. Note that D natural in a sheet music transposed for an instrument in the key of D, is noted as if was a C to make it easier to read playing the D-instrument.

comment On the guitar, if I play a song which is in the key of D, where should I put the capo?
I want to emphasize the last paragraph about D, G, A are much simpler chords on the guitar. If using barre, the best "ground set" of chords are E, A, B (where B is just A using barre at 2nd fret). Then all other keys are just moving using E and A with barre at the relative fret position based on E as ground key.

comment Why are birds never out of key when they sing?
Birds tend to only sing in good weather when the sun is shining. This I think is the most important aspect to "associating birdsong with pleasant things".
