@Shevliakovic - thanks, I like to give OPs a bit to do themselves. We all learn more that way. At least, I always have...And there wasn't an answer without lots of ellipses...

comment Why are violin string so expensive?
Probably has far more to do with market forces. Thousands more guitar strings must be sold than violin strings. At very least, I think guitar strings are more sacrificial.

@SimonWhite - why is the perfectly good answer left as a comment?

As it stands, this question is too open, we don't know what style you aspire to, what facilities you have to practise, what sort of budget you have, what resources you've already tried, whether you would prefer electronic or acoustic drums, etc.

comment Guitarists: Back Pain After a Gig
Thanks for the response. Try to have the guitar as high as poss., it appears that you have previous back problems, so higher will not exacerbate them. It's probably easier to gyrate around on stage with a high slung guitar, anyway! You tagged 'bass guitar' as well. Why?

comment Gregorian modes in Renaissance music (with Cabezón's 'Tiento del Cuarto Tono' as an example)
It's starting in A minor, and the first C# is to take it to D minor. The G# is then to get back to A minor. While the G# is common in A minor pieces, the C# isn't. Unless it's modulated to D minor... No F# in sight, so 'having a key sig. of 3#' doesn't seem a possibility. Did I just spot one in the 2nd line? More like A melodic minor, then.
