comment “Dull” sound when recording dry audio from an Ibanez S series, not caused by old strings?
That is to say, maybe the dry tones that the OP is comparing his tone to probably do not sound great (like a recorded tube amplifier in a nice sounding hall or whatever); they sound better than what he's getting. The answer is an attempt from that angle, anyway.

@leftaroundabout That may well be so, but there is nothing in the question about tube amps or cabinets; just comparing dry recorded sounds. EQ will improve a dry recorded guitar sound relative to one that isn't EQ'd, and the EQ that will almost certainly be required is a "frown curve".

Fix glaring error. D is the subdominant of A, not G#m.

comment Fux counterpoint: why is it in the modal system?
If 1752 is way beyond the end of modality, why is 1970's fusion chock full of it ... :)

comment A plan for trying to get into making electronic music
All you need is a synth/keyboard, USB MIDI dongle, and Sekaiju. Oh, and some cables to capture audio from a synth in your PC. Audacity for mixing, editing and making MP3's (via the LAME plugin).

Points 2 and 3 are unnecessary, and likely place you ahead of some of the artists in those musical genres.

comment Why classical music compositions are named with key/scale/note names?
@wadesworld What? The variation has a very small upper limit: there are only twelve keys, in the major and minor flavor. Bach used up all of them in the Well Tempered Clavier alone.
