comment Music Question Theory Writting A Piece
If you are unsure about what any of these elements are, please ask a specific question about each. Outside of them, what do to is purely subjective and we're not a composition service. See music.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

comment Whats are some ways of visualizing notes on guitar's fret-board if you come from piano background?
Countless people do extremely well with visual methods. Linking the physical positions with the sound is not inherently better than linking the visual positions with the sound. If this works for you, awesome, but personal experience shouldn't be used as the basis for absolutes.

comment Does anyone here get Musical Tinnitus ? Can it be influenced or controlled?
This seems more like a health/neurology question than a musical one, it just happens to be music that your brain has settled on for producing or interpreting some kind of signal. You should probably see a specialist.

comment Why is it so uncommon to see electric basses with flat fretboards?
@Tim Hmm, I do like to use barring when I play my 5-string. It's quite useful when alternating strings on the same fret.

comment Why is it so uncommon to see electric basses with flat fretboards?
I would hazard a guess that the vertical displacement helps prevent the strings from hitting each other, since the heavier bass strings will oscillate more than classical guitar strings. It might also be to help with barring, which would be quite difficult on a wide flat board with bass strings.

Facing it, or facing away?

comment Why do we remember music better?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is primarily about psychology. Questions should be oriented towards musicians -- see meta.music.stackexchange.com/q/268/28

It's not on-topic with less detail, I was trying to be specific. See meta.music.stackexchange.com/a/724/28 for the long version.

comment My guitar goes out of tune at a higher pitch rather than lower, is that normal?
I don't see a way that playing style could cause this, unless that style involves turning the tuning pegs. I frequently play just finger picking and my strings detune normally (they get lower).

comment What is the difference between Fender and Squier guitars?
@ToddWilcox You're correct. They also make guitars in Korea and I would assume other countries as well.

Shopping advice is off-topic here, but we can answer the question about Fender vs Squier so I am editing to narrow it down to that.

comment Second hand piano is out of tune by a whole tone
Yes, this always happens to pianos when moving and yes, pianos can be tuned. You really should meaure the pitch more objectively though.

Please clarify what the exact issue is -- do you not know tablature at all, or is there something specific about this?
