comment Symbols “M”, “C”, “D”, and “P” in Guitar Tablature
It was the first thing I tried... although a good reference overall, this Wikipedia article unfortunately doesn't cover this particular "corner case".

I would if I could, but since I can't, I'm expressing my opinion in the closest place I can :)

comment Vertical wall mount / Holding a guitar by the neck
@neilfein: not really, I wasn't. What I meant is that even experts should avoid the 'because I said so' explanation when giving advice to potential laymen, as is the case of a FAQ. His statement is very counter-intuitive, and this alone should be a reason for him to phrase that as "you should detune your instrument if you won't play in a long time, because of X". IMHO, saying something is obvious when most of your audience wouldn't think it is is just plain elitism.

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."

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
