Re: Micro notes

Yes, but you wouldn't be able to play an entire piece for a micro tuning with bending, or at least it would be nearing on impossible.

I am really liking the concept of microtonality, because, if you think about it, there is really no good reason why we should be playing music in 12TET other than "sticking to what we know". There is way more to music than just the 12 notes we know, and why not explore that?

Here are two great microtonal guitarists for you:

Dan Stearns
Neil Haverstick

I can think of a good reason: because microtonal sounds like crap.

It sounds like crap to you because you have been fed 12TET for so long. Almost the entire classical musical tradition of India is, by our standards, microtonal, and nobody there would claim that it sounds like crap. It's all about opening your ears and your mind to something new every once in a while.
