I'm in the process of making a tuning mechanism for guitars for my school project, and I need to have a survey. If you have a minute, can you please fill it out? It'll literally take only 2 minutes! Thanks y'all

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?hl=en_US&formkey=dHVhUDNTUkFUMkN4N3FISWRFODJia1E6MA#gid=0\

EDIT: It's a lot easier for me to analyze the data if you guys input the data on a google document, so if you guys already filled out the form, can you guys do it again? Thanks y'all!
