I can't help because I haven't taken the WP course and know nothing about WP as of yet but isn't that covered in the video? lol

I checked the vids multiple times and cant find anything about them. Still waiting for other replies though.

I've checked the videos and the information is there.

For the first question of your post, they refer to the object you instantiate (with $query = new ******( $args ) ).

The second question is exactly the same case as the videos from the course. You just have to specify the variable containing your custom query (without forgetting "->")

For the third question, they ask you how would you name the single.php file for the custom post type "music". When you query a page which is a custom post type, wordpress will look for a file named like single-{custom-post-type}.php

Hope that makes sense and that I don't give away the answers completely.

Thanks man, my mind just blanked for the entirety of the time I watched the last few vids. cheers :)
