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".

@luserdroog: I agree. "Figures" is really the word I was looking for when I wrote it, so thanks! I have changed it now.

comment What is the best way to introduce my 4 year old to harmonica?
I also have a two year old, by the way, and he plays the harmonica by breathing in and out at the same place, and produces a nice harmonica sound from that, although it's a bit monotonic melody... ;) He also plays with rytmic instruments like Marachas, Bells (as in Jingle Bells...) etc. He also has a cylofone with color codes, but he prefers to ask me to play that...
