It's called music theory for a reason. Its a set of coherent explanations for musical phenomena, whether it's in 12-tone equal temperament or something else.

It mostly depends on the type of string you use. When I first got it I put a bass string .080 in but I needed to really crush it to get it in. Now that I use Circle K strings which are very flexible,...

Take it from someone who actually has an eight-string: it's no problem going from six to eight. You need to adjust to it, like you do with any different guitar. There's no 'graduation'; you went from...

Yeah. I was studying IT, but it depressed me so I made a radical decision and started studying law instead.

It makes your tone consistent... if you can't up-pick as well as down-picking.

If you're good at both, there's no benefit to tone at all.

Because it's fun.

You're also forced to stay in time if you weren't using a metronome.

Let me guess, standard tuning?

Mute your lowest string. My bet is when you play that shape, the note on the 14th fret is making the lowest string ring out its fourth harmonic in sympathy as they're...
