comment Is there a technical term for sad songs with happy lyrics and vice versa?
Although it is English language, this is very specific to musical terms, and it is likely to be more experts on this here on Music than on English.

comment The same note on two staves
@MatthewRead: I would guess G-clef on the upper stave, and F (bass) cleff on the lower, since this is very common. It also fits with the question as indicates that the middle C overlaps.

comment Free resource for pitch correction on a whole track?
They may not have trained them neccesarily to 440Hz, but to the pitch most commonly practiced. I believe the people that have this problem have natural exceptional musical abilities, and have developed perfect pitch without trying to, just to listen to music where most have a common pitch. Maybe @Shimmy can give more first hand information on this?

comment Manufacturer claims guitar's sound will improve the more I play it. Is that true?
This would mean that ALL decent guitars would get better over time, not just those from the manufacturer in question. So it means that this manufacturer tries to take advantage on a general concept that is true for all, but they want to give impression that their guitars are better because of it...

comment Is there a way to develop “Perfect Pitch”?
@VarLogRant: "perfect pitch" or "absolute pitch" is an expression for the ability to pinpoint a note to be exactly the one it is, related to an A being 440 herz. People with natural absolute pitch actually find this problematic when they hear music that are not tuned perfectly to this reference. See this question.

comment Free resource for pitch correction on a whole track?
There are a few people out there with perfect pitch, and I know that it's really anoying for them to listen to off pitch music. For us "normal" people that don't have perfect pitch, it may be difficult to understand, but I know one that do, and for him this is a real problem.

comment What's a good Android app for tuning a brass instrument
The difference in my case would be the main frequencies, as I play Tuba. The main specter for tuba is generally about one octave lower than bass guitar.

comment Criteria for speeding up when practicing with a metronome
@luserdroog: You need to learn the song and develop the technique at low speed first. Then when you can play it effordless at low speed, you can introduce the metronome to speed it up.

This and this are questions that have some good advice on practicing scales on guitar.

comment Why learn scales? What are they for?
This is a very important point, and the main reason to practice scales. While the other answers here points out good theory on what scales are, and why they are significant, this answer gives the reason to why you should practice scales. When you can play scales without thinking on what you play, you can play almost anything. This is also the way to improve your speed.

comment Teaching rhythm to a beginner
I would think scales are equally "built in" for any instrument (or at least should be), so this is a good answer for violin as well.
