comment what distinguishes jazz from classical and vice versa?
I look at the question as being in a position as a composer that is getting a request from someone. I believe that you would have to determine what the differences in the style are to satisfy a request. We all would like to compose to the truest thing but people who are employed as composers are asked for certain styles.

comment Should I practise chords as a beginner?
Good advice...those guys started off with basics. You would have to if playing fast and clean is the goal. They have also put in a lot of work and they are very disciplined to play that style.

comment Should I practise chords as a beginner?
Stairway offers nice strumming chord progressions used in many songs beyond it's intro. The solo is a great example of how to utilize the whole neck for scales. I think it is an appropriate choice, but other tunes like Heartbreaker, Whole Lotta Love, and Communication Breakdown can be easily understood for riffs too.

comment How can a novice singer develop their tone?
ok, I practice listening to one phrase of a vocal like the first lyrics of a song and concentrate on copying the phrase. I record my take and listen to it. I then repeat the process to get closer. I only can say I go by ear and just copy and verify by recording.

the volume would decrease a little...shouldn't effect tone.

comment How is 12-bar blues harmonically possible?
Try playing Mixolydian scales over each chord. It has the flatted seventh to match chord. Experiment with that and the C Minor and Major pentatonic scales too.

comment With guitar, how long should I give my fingers to strengthen / callous?
You should have it checked by someone to see if the action is correct. That way you can be sure that it is in good playing condition.

comment How to play a Pentatonic Major using a Pentatonic Minor 3 octave shape
If you start in Aeolian realize that is relative to the Major(Ionian) scale. A Minor is relative to C Major. Some more info on modes: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mode_(music)
