comment Is it possible for an unamplified acoustic bass guitar to be loud?
@slim - Renfest band, but not tied down to period accuracy. (There's a lot of Celtic and Indian music in the mix.)

That would be a great solution, but I suspect for the long term. What's the price range on these?

(1) It's a renaissance band, and an upright doesn't fit with the period, unfortunately. Also, (2) I don't know how to play one.

comment How to fret an F# root note with a drop-E capo?
And, unfortunately, this is about as far as I can back the capo off the frets and still have it hold the notes down well. But perhaps I could cut the end in a bit with a hacksaw and angle it. Hmm...

comment How to fret an F# root note with a drop-E capo?
That's exactly what I do on my dreadnought - angle my thumb in there. But on this guitar, I really don't have the room for this.

comment Will hanging a guitar by its headstock damage it?
Electric or acoustic guitar? I've recently become aware that this makes a huge difference. "Acoustic guitar rooms" in guitar shops are often humidified.

comment How do you care for your guitar?
Type of guitar? A solidbody electric guitar will have different issues than a delicate acoustic guitar.

comment How often should I use my guitar humidifier?
This seems to make sense, but can you cite a source for this information?

comment What is a “producer” in hip-hop music?
@WheatWilliams - The point is that this is too basic; it can be answered by a simple search on Wikipedia. (It really should have been closed as "general reference", but that close reason doesn't exist on this site.)

comment What can I build into my guitar and use the “tone pots” buttons to adjust?
This isn't an answerable questions, it's a call for discussion. Vote to close.

comment Guitar for super-small hands?
The A&L Ami is a very nice guitar, but its sibling, the Seagull Grand, is an amazingly responsive steel-string fingerstyle guitar - and it sounds great. I wouldn't use it for rhythmic playing, though.

comment What instrument is this?
@JavierBadia - That's the oddest thing I've seen in some time. Nice!

comment Bring Your Own Mic
Most festival sets are significantly longer than open mic sets - 30 to 60 minutes, in my experience. I work audio at festivals, and it's never a problem when a performer has their own mic. (Some singers eat the mic, and bring their own even though it's just an SM58 or similar; others have specific vocal mics they prefer.) But if a performer brought their own mic for an open mic, I'd tell them to leave it in their bag unless they had a very good reason for needing it.
