comment What do I need to look for in a Y splitter for guitar?
I don't have one lying around. Is that better than using an aby box?

comment What should I look for in speakers for an electronic keyboard
I edited your question a bit as it was bordering on off topic. It would be useful to know what you want to do with it. Are you just playing at home?

comment How can I multitrack record my band practices?
@slim, really? Any that I've ever used do. Both Audacity and Reaper certainly support it. Maybe that's a restriction that companies put on their entry level DAWs?

comment How can I multitrack record my band practices?
@slim, I have reaper and audacity. I also see that a lot of these interfaces come with a DAW, so I wasn't really worried about that aspect.

Or does this question really live on audio.SE?

comment Why can't I whistle and hum different notes at the same time?
Good answer. In particular, trying to change the whistle note by moving your tongue while keeping the sung note constant is a great place to start. That's how I learned how to do this on the didgeridoo, which is essentially the same technique.

comment Should guitar be de-tuned when not in use…?
Baggage compartments are almost always pressurized (although, the plane is pressurized to like 8000ft, not sea level). If you think about it, it's easier to pressurize a tube than half a tube.

comment Get rid (or try to) of latency when using a MIDI instrument
How bad is the latency?

comment What to check when buying a new guitar?
@slim, I disagree. It's super easy to fix and $200 is almost nothing for an electric guitar. If you're a beginner and don't know what you are doing, you should get a setup on your guitar anyway. It's worth doing for any guitar, pretty much regardless of price.

comment Serato Scratch Live or Traktor Scratch Pro? (Or None)
Voted to close as a shopping recommendation. Question would be ok as "What should I look for in DJ software" but not as a comparison of two specific pieces of software.

comment What is a harmonic note and how do you play it?
@jadarnel, no the 12th fret harmonic is the same note as the 12th fret fretted.

comment A guitar won't stay in tune, also dirty pickup selector
Terrible idea. WD-40 leaves a residue that attracts dirt. It fixes the problem in the short term, but makes it worse in the long term.

-1 for reason stated above. This isn't an answer.

comment How do professional accompanying musicians (seem to) figure out songs instantly?
Let alone without warming up for live TV.

comment How to become a DJ
@Matthew, I totally disagree. I think the question is certainly sufficient for a complete answer, and I could give one. There are two basic paths, each with a couple of common choices. I could definitely supply a pretty definitive answer to this question. I think if you use the guitar analogy, it's similar to the questions about electric, acoustic, type, style, amps, effects.

+1 if this is happening, your technique is wrong!

comment Guitar Amplifier (Head versus Combo versus None)
In order to play quietly at home, through your existing stereo, or headphones, something like the POD is definitely the way to go. There are a number of options, but any amp modeler will treat you ok. Once you want to start playing with other people, you'll need a real amp (or PA system), but you'll be fine with the amp modeler for a good while.

Then yes, stretch.

comment How can I toughen up my fingertips?
Does this actually work? I kind of feel like calluses are built up with bends and fretting / releasing strings. If the "strings" are static (i.e. you're always pushing on the grip), will it really build calluses?
