Don't transcribe the repeated notes, just the pitch, than treat them like thrillers, mordents or tremolos using a sign above this notes like an sign for an ornament, that is either played with both hands or with one hand holding vertically and pulling the fingers down the keys (like a karate hit) - but don't break the piano.

There are in fact a few clarinets that can play as low as G2. However, the most commonly used of these is the Bass Clarinet in Bb, which sounds an octave lower than the most common clarinet, the Clarinet in Bb. The Basset Horn and Alto Clarinet can also play G2, but are far less commonly owned or played. And of course, G2 is relatively “mid-range” for ...

For example just include notes out of range, etc. All the open string chords can be played in a movable chord format. In such formats the index finger acts as a capo. Most players will be ...

Your question is really two separate questions so I will answer them individually. Question 1) Is it possible to play any song on guitar without using a capo? The answer is yes (assuming both guitars are in standard tuning). A capo makes it possible to use the same chord shapes to play a song in a different key or use a different chord set to play a ...

It depends what you mean. If you mean play a recognisable version of the song, it's almost certainly possible without a capo or a particular tuning. If you mean getting it sounding the same without a capo or a particular tuning, then in many cases it may be difficult or impossible - the use of the capo or tuning may allow fingerings, chord voicings, and ...
