just like most exams: if it can be tested, we'll throw it in...

comment When we talk about an 88/76/etc Key piano, does that include all keys or just white notes?
Good question - if the black keys disappeared, it would still be the same size!

there are exams for guitar where no reading is required - RGT electric for one.

comment What does it *mean* to be a good guitarist
It's really not up to you to say "I'm a good guitarist". It's up to others. Then, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To me, someone who can play several songs, perfectly, is more of a 'one trick pony' than a 'good player'.

comment What is this bass belt strap?
A lot of them are designed so an ordinary strap will still fit. Guitar and bass use the same thing. Some tie-clips from the past used the same sort of mechanism.
