comment Beginner guitar : Ode to Joy - is it chords shown in sheet? E.g. C is shown, but not played in note
The F chord makes the G in the melody an unprepared suspension and similar to an accented passing note as it resolves step-wise.

comment Music Notation - Little notes
You are describing a cadenza. While that may be written out, and generally small notes are used for that, what is asked about here is not a cadenza.

comment I'm tonedeaf. If I sing to my baby, will I damage his/her musical ear?
There is no guarantee that recorded music will play back at exactly the right pitch. Even if it was rigorously controlled at every point in production, playback is entirely dependent on the playback device. (Granted, the amount of variance which is likely or possible to introduce is probably small, but a blanket "It's exact" cannot be guaranteed at all.)

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.

comment Should the key of a song composition be chosen based on the type of song?
I disagree. A piece played in D-flat sounds very different to the same piece played in D.

comment How to transpose slash 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.
