comment Why are time signatures needed?
@Carlitos_30 The most basic interpretation of a time signature is that each bar contains the time of (top number * bottom number-note). So 3/4 has the time of 3 quarter notes per bar. 6/8 has the time of 6 eighth notes per bar. Etc. (The duration of each note depends on the tempo which is, again, independent of the time signature.) I'd suggest reading some questions here on this site to start figuring out more details: music.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/time-signatures

comment If I'm grade X, how close to X-standard pieces should I be able to sight read?
Please specify in the question if you are talking about ABRSM or another grading system. The answer is probably in the syllabus though.

comment Why are time signatures needed?
This doesn't make any sense. The time signature is about the beat and fully independent of the tempo, and neither depends on the type of instrument.

comment Is the quality of a USB microphone worse than using a conventional mic through a separate audio interface?
Shopping recommendations are off-topic here so I've removed the specific products from your question. The core concern seems independent of the particular products so the answers should give you what you need to make the decision between them (or something else).

comment Why is “A” not used for augmented in Chord symbols?
"Not too confusing" seems like poor reason to buck convention. Might as well call your notes A-L instead of having sharps and flats.

comment Chord symbols for diminished and half-diminished
° is use for double-flats which could also be said to be "diminished" compared to the base note, so it could come from there. Like many other sheet music markings, that seems to be chosen simply because it does the job.

comment What is the name of guitar in cover of book Hal Leonard Guitar Method: Music Theory?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because basic identification instruments and other artifacts is off-topic. Please refer to this Meta post for more detail.

comment Instruments on their own tracks - music file and repositories?
Please keep it to one question per post. As Bradd noted, #2 is off-topic. #1 might not be but out of curiosity is there some issue with using multiple files? Finally the add-on question shares this answer.
