Picked up a Science Notebook last night in the Science Tent -- Tentacles appeared today. Two-handed accordion weapon wielding, so need to know if any advantage to switching to one-handed accordion to employ notebook off-hand. --Gasvac (talk) 03:41, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

F#

"F# on the low E string" this would require raising E by two half-steps. Is this a reference to creepy impossibility, or can a guitar string be played a whole step higher without retuning? (A harp string couldn't, but I know little about guitars.) If the F# sound can be played on an E string, I suppose the disquiet would come from the fact that you'd normally play F# as a raised F rather than a double-raised E... Opinion by a guitar-player, please?Alianoraree (talk) 04:17, 30 January 2017 (UTC)

  • Yes, a single guitar string can easily be played a whole step higher. That's what the non-strumming hand does: it presses down on one or more strings, using the frets to shorten the strings and thus raise the notes. It's also why a guitar needs only six strings, unlike a harp: because each string can be fingered to play multiple different notes. Guitars do not ordinarily have F or F# strings; raising the E string two half-steps is the only way to play that note on a standard-tuned guitar. --Baltar (talk) 21:16, 30 January 2017 (UTC)
