you would wear the valves out a little faster, but it shouldnt have damaged it in any way. Play it. If it sounds terrible then you've busted something.

It would be similar to leaving it in the 'on' mode and not playing it for 6 hours. Like mentioned above, your tubes just got a little wear in them.

Not quite. Leaving tubes on standby wears out the filament faster than if the amp is left all the way on.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

^+1 its not gonna be a big deal at all, ive accidentally left mine on for days at a time and had no damage, however, im surprised it didnt catch on fire hahaha. sorry, i felt that a "bugera on fire" statement was necessary. dno't do it oftern or you will find yourself spending alot on tubes.
