comment Do out of tune singers hear that they're off?
@Some_Guy I'm in a similar position (I sometimes know I'm wrong). I suspect it's part nature, part nurture. I probably didn't get much from nature, and never really worked on improving it with practice. If I had focused on doing so when young, I'd probably be better. Even later in life, with some "background work" (not explicitly practising; just being around some people who were better) I have got "less awful", so there's probably always hope!

comment Do out of tune singers hear that they're off?
"I can sing. I know I can sing." for me, it is "I can't sing. I know I can't sing." and what you describe (esp. the normal curve) sounds pretty-much spot-on. Sometimes I can hear that my voice is not matching the "song in my head"... sometimes I don't/can't notice. Sometimes while I know the song in my head I can't work out what I should attempt to do with my voice to match it.

comment Does leaving the excess string uncut, affect the guitar's tone?
@user152435 Those things can affect the tone only if they affect how the string vibrates. If the nut is doing a reasonable job of keeping its end of the string stationary, then nothing on "the other side" of the nut is going to affect how the string vibrates.
