comment Memorizing notes on guitar fretboard
I play bass, 5 string strung like a guitar. But it is the same for any string instrument, there is nothing special or unique about guitar. The notes are alphabetical for a guitar or a cello or a ukelele or a banjo. Once you know that an open string is "E" the notes go in alphabetical order from there on that string. Same for all strings. Hence, if you know the alphabet, you are almost there.

It should be enough, because once you know the first note (the open string) you just run the alphabet to get wherever you want.

The notes will always be alphabetical from whatever note the string is tuned to. Always. No matter what tuning you use. You are making this way harder than it needs to be.

comment Is there any open source notation software for indian shrutis?
Want me to come to your house and enter the notes for you too? Did you even go to lilypond.org and read any of the documentation? Or maybe enter the words "microtonal" into the search engine they have in their site?

comment Scales, modes, techniques for writing “Super Mario” style music
These types of questions are not really answerable, and are really all just versions of "how do I compose music", for which there are entire sections in your local library dedicated to that subject. This question is like asking "what color should I use to paint a picture of an apple". Use whatever color you want, if you want a purple apple, use purple, if you want a red apple, use red. There is no answer to these types of questions, you may compose a perfectly reasonable song that doesn't use a similar scale at all, and just because you use this same scale, it doesn't mean that it is going to
