comment Lead sheets vs score at vocal auditions: Changing standards?
I really don't think this is a recent change, it's probably best transitioned to this over the last 20 years. But the level of orchestration and detail for these styles of music (musical theater or pop singing) probably dictates a score to be more appropriate. (Withholding the idea that in musical theaters some sections may be cut-and-pasted or a loop performed...) A lead sheet, on the other hand (assuming you're talking about one that may use degree notation or Nashville notation, since key changes are brought up multiple times) is probably too malleable to be useful in an audition.

comment Room-wide humidity buffering
Perhaps for guitar he was speaking about fretboard conditioner. Very common to use lemon oil or a similar product to condition the fretboard and make it more resilient to warping/cracking/aging. This is generally the only appropriate place to put an oil rub/finish on as it usually (with the exception of some maple fretboards) is unfinished and most prone to elemental changes.

Perhaps the general piano audition accompaniment is more comfortable reading a score's "exact" part instead of interpreting with a lead sheet (hints of improvisation). Maybe a general background of piano accompaniment has to do mostly with this.

@Drue definitely cool and definitely convenient. When you don't have battery problems.

comment tab reading on middle strings
Ok, split hairs. But try strumming those traditionally while avoiding the half step rub created from F#(4th string) and G(3rd string open) played together. In most professional tablature that is intended for plectrum-style guitar you'll see an "x" on the G string because the best tablature is to be understood without any assumptions. You know what assuming does, don't you?

The realm of guitar is a very analog world, still.

Also, switching is best done by the feet for guitarists, hence all the pedalboards. Many pedal switchers exist from BOSS (bossus.com/gear/productdetails.php?ProductId=150) to Lehle (lehle.com/EN/Switcher) that allow you to easily send your signal out to different amps like you are suggestion happens with the wireless transmitter, albeit, they are not wireless.

@Drue, digital channels are for wireless interference or multiple sources (guitars) with one wireless system. In short, they can not change channels on an amp or output to different sources.

comment Why do so many pieces written in a minor key sharp the 7th?
That leading tone is a powerful pull.

comment Is it possible to create the illusion of a sub-harmonic?
Does work well. I do it on guitar when playing power chords. If I create a power chord, say D on the 5th string, and then I add the A below that 5th fret, with some distortion, it appears to sound like a Drop-D power chord.

Yes, tab should have notated that to be played as an "x" over the g string. Unless it truly is played finger style in the right hand. No other possible way to skip strings.

Added the direct reference and time-code embedded into the answer. Thanks for the answer! Notice the lack of a physical slide or whammy bar (except the little extra added on top at the end) in this specific example . Just distortion, dissonance, volume swells and extreme flange (slight multi-repeats delay too).
