comment How can I learn to recognize intervals larger than an octave?
Also, isolate the intervals in question. Some apps allows you just to randomize intervals above an octave; so you can get used to minor 9th - Perfect 11th for instance. Otherwise you'll be getting a lot of intervals you don't want to practice inside the octave.

comment Would the induced tension be approximately equal on an acoustic guitar for electric and acoustic strings of the same gauge?
Yes, the individual strings may be differing tension, specifically the wound third, but overall, I think the perception of more or less tension will depend on the scale length than one wound string.

comment Why Is Just Intonation Impractical?
I always thought of this as compensated tuning (unique to the instrument), and not just intonation. Is there an answer here that clarifies that?

comment Equivalent Key Signatures
Interesting! So do you know if certain keys are chosen by the composer because of the common intonation choices of the performers?

comment What do you use to remove a potent allergen from a classical guitar?
WebMD seems to agree with his allergy assumption. It specifically mentions an allergic reaction to the sap, and goes a step further mentioning that up to 85% of the population isn't even allergic to it. webmd.com/allergies/guide/poison-ivy-oak-sumac

comment Why does this dual Flying V have the tuners on the back body in addition to the headstock?
Also, it would add a considerable amount of weight to the relatively light headstock that exists, and almost certainly require more wood.

comment What parts of instutional education does a non-institutional student miss?
Wikipedia mentions a few times that he was limited in theory/analysis... According to music historian Alec Wilder, it was well known that Berlin, unable to commit his own music to paper ... He played almost entirely in the key of F sharp so that he could stay on the black notes and owned two transposing pianos so as to change keys...he once asked a songwriter friend, Victor Herbert, whether he should study composition. "You have a natural gift for words and music," Mr. Herbert told him. "Learning theory might help you a little, but it could cramp your style." Berlin took his advice

Just trying to show that lack of formal music education (theory/reading) can span across any genre.

comment What parts of instutional education does a non-institutional student miss?
Plenty of early jazz musicians were non-educated in music. They developed great harmonic ears to play what they played. Of course, this answer skews away from classical music, I'd say. But still applies to most pop (whether we like the music or not), rock, blues, country, and even some jazz musicians currently.
