help my mum play riffs

Xylophone in How Soon is Now?

I'm doing a song analysis on this awesome song, but I can't nail down one of the instruments. It appears around 3:15 into the song, and also at the end. I'm figuring its either a xylophone or a synth. Anyone care to shed some light (that will never go out)

How do guitar learners stay motivated and start "knowing" the fretboard?

I'm thinking about getting back to playing guitar after a decade. I never got past the basics the first time around, so I've always wondered about two things: how do experienced guitar players fundamentally see and "know" their instrument (especially where everything is on the fretboard), and what motivated them to keep practicing when they were newbies?

Classic rock/pop songs that play well on a single acoustic guitar?

Calling all guitar players: Looking for popular songs that can easily be played and sung by a single person with an acoustic guitar without losing too much. Basically, the kind of songs you can put in a set list where people's reactions are to immediately say, "Hey, I really like that song," followed immediately by "and hey, that sounds pretty close to the original too!" Also, very important: Any song should be playable by a *mediocre* guitar player. [more inside]

Who makes the guitar that Emmylou Harris is playing?

Emmylou Harris ordinarily uses a Gibson acoustic guitar, but on some songs (notably The Pearl) she uses a crazy guitar with its lowest string lifted off the fretboard as a drone. Who makes it? Here is a (mesmerizing) video of her playing The Pearl And here is a photo of her playing it. (The pic shows the luthier's mark on the headstock, but I do not recognize it).

What are some of the best resources on the electric guitar?

Collectively, I'd like these resources to cover everything a professional electric guitarist would need to know, from technique (basic and advanced) to related tech (amps, effects units, etc.) to guitar maintenance.
