comment Vertical wall mount / Holding a guitar by the neck
I was liking the page until I read the highly-disputable, weasel-worded and not-really-explained phrase "We all agree that you should detune any instrument that's going into storage for a long time without being used."

comment How to hear yourself better at the rehearsal studio?
I wish I could do it with the half-stack that I play on =D

Probably the best way to go, obviously. Any clever workarounds for when the studio/you don't have one available?

comment How do professional accompanying musicians (seem to) figure out songs instantly?
I've seen this mostly with pop songs. I imagined that they probably base their progression choice on a "standard" song. But this leaves the question, how do they decide which? Not less importantly, how do everyone agree in the choice, seemingly wordless?

The ear-plug idea seems interesting, I'll try that =D

I'm sure that sometimes it is really staged. I failed to state the premise that, for the sake of the question, I'm obviously interested in the situations that aren't staged =D

comment How do you get into “deep practice” mode?
I beg to differ on "There's just understanding and practice, at least in my eyes(...)". Sometimes I do bring myself to pratice something and the sesssion is not efficient at all. Sometimes I take the guitar just to play something and end up making a major leap in some area. That's being in "deep pratice", "in the zone", "in the flow". It's not a magical concept, it's a state of mind in which you pratice more efficiently than otherwise.
