I'm in the UK; a singer with a couple of cathedral vacation choirs, and an organist (but not at that standard!), with previous experience in a number of wind instruments.

comment Should the key of a song composition be chosen based on the type of song?
I don't have perfect pitch, although I do have “a certain sensitivity” and can pitch fairly accurately. But to me, D major sounds quite martial and D-flat rather lugubrious. Even for the same piece of music.

I disagree. A piece played in D-flat sounds very different to the same piece played in D.

comment How to transpose / chords for guitar
B#, Cb, E# and Fb do exist; Cb even has a key signature. But I wouldn't expect them to appear in guitar chords.

comment Is my Yamaha guitar counterfeit?
It does seem that the label is particularly poorly printed. I would have thought Yamaha would be more careful with how heir trademark appeared. I think you're only going to know by comparing it with one from a recognised Yamaha dealer.
