comment What are the legal issues of posting a cover version online?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's about legal issues; explained here

comment Does it make sense to do exam grades as an adult learner?
What do you mean by "see them for the next"?

comment Meaning of diamond-shape notes on guitar staff
@Dave Is this notation a standard one? I mean, if I see a diamond-shaped note in the high E position, can I be sure it must be played on the first string, or can it be a 5th-fret harmonic on the 6th string? Also, is this notation used with artificial harmonics?

comment Removing stuck screws from woodwind instruments
Are these screws made of iron? If so, maybe try vinegar to dissolve the rust. Also, a hair dryer may be more effective for heating these large brass parts.

comment What does a circle before/between notes mean?
Do these markings tell us anything about how to play the B in the second bar? Does the absence of "o" markings in e.g. second triplet mean "play it like earlier", "play it differently" or "I felt helpful for a while but now I feel lazy"? I think all the triplets should be played similarly; asking just in case I missed something obvious.

comment What does a circle before/between notes mean?
I actually thought about them as the letter "o" for "open"; so the circle style confused me.

comment How to memorize a long, seemingly random, sequence of two notes at a time?
I don't need general guidance; it's only this specific situation I would like to resolve. Using your designations, I want to develop stage 3 on my example. I understand (more or less) how to do it in more obvious situations (e.g. chord sequence), but my example seems different; chords don't exist or maybe I'm just unable to identify them.

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 for this song?
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!

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
