This question I asked seems related

comment Why do strings break when I am not playing?
The last one broke at the nut (I don't remember about the previous ones). Yes, it's a classical guitar (actually, two of them) with standard tuning - and no, no sunlight.

comment advice for guitar music theory?
There is no single right way to learn theory and stuff, so I guess you will not get an answer you need. To improve your chance, I think you should clarify your question, like: What parts of theory do you already know (after 1 year)? What next big thing do you want to accomplish? Which type of guitar?

comment Do I need to use a guitar capo?
Playing a whole song with a continuous barre on the same fret seems crazy! I doubt anyone would want to do it, except for some sort of extreme "workout".

comment What's the point of keys other than C and Am?
After playing a few different melodies in C/Am I got a constant nagging feeling that "all music is the same"; I guess composers got that too...

comment Am/C guitar chord help
If you want to strum, the first version seems much more appropriate (to the point that you could call the second one "incorrect")

comment Does the electric guitar necessarily have a narrower dynamic range compared to an acoustic guitar?
@WheatWilliams Maybe not thankless - you have my thanks! (and also @slim)

comment Does the electric guitar necessarily have a narrower dynamic range compared to an acoustic guitar?
I am not familiar with the mechanics there, but I imagine dynamic compression is some pedal or knob that you can tune, and they usually tune it to be strong, so the sound lasts longer than with acoustic guitars.

@BenMiller It seems like your note on the callus is spot on!

@BenMiller Nylon (can I use steel in classical guitar?)

comment Finger independence exercises - quality or quantity?
I agree this is a very good exercise, but I was talking about the "dry" ones that you can do without a guitar

comment Guitar chords high on the neck
@VarLogRant For me, anything higher than 4 is pretty high. So, probably no confusion there.

comment How to decide whether my guitar is really bad
It's good to have a list of things that could go wrong! In my case, it's only the action that may too large (5.5 mm); all the rest are OK. I have yet to compare with other guitars.
