comment How to figure out what key a piece is in?
the lack of F's (F nat/#) and the presence of C nat, makes it seem more D dorian[?] than a D maj/min key.

comment Bach's Bourree BWV 996 timing issue
"All this stuff can't really be taught and this is what makes some people better than others..." That's quite an unfair assumption. Yes, it's difficult if you're trying to do it on your own, but if your teacher knows how to do it, then they can teach it. A teacher might say "I'm going to play this phrase like this, you listen, then repeat after me."

comment The skinny on neck constructions. Is it all about tone?
I agree that there are some good points here... the original question is rather ambiguous in terms of describing guitar A and guitar B. All we know is that they're two different neck joints. Perhaps guitar B has better pickups? a fernandez sustainer? different strings?

comment How do you identify a good guitar?
very true, but those are expensive guitars right? Cheap electrics are often better setup than cheap acoustics, if not, at least the can be easier to change (bridge adjustments, etc)
