comment How to hold a plectrum?
There are quite a few problems with this post, so I have down voted. You have made absolute statements, but most are entirely opinion focused - eg picking from fingers, wrist or elbow: all are correct; no point saying you should pick from the wrist. And in any case, the question is about how to hold the pick!

comment Do disconnected pickups alter sound in noticeable way?
If they are fully switched out, then yes, they will not introduce interference to the signal pathway, however in many guitar circuits there is not full disconnection - just disconnection of one leg of the circuit. So the component can still pick up interference.

Every component adds the potential for noise, topo. The wires to each pickup, the pickups themselves etc.

comment How do (bass) guitar players stop a note?
Yep, both of these. Other fingers, or releasing pressure on the fretting finger.

You specifically mentioned you want to do this for the sound. It will not give you much of a sound difference. Fit point 3 - they hold the strings down, as otherwise that long stretch could let the strings pop out of the nut.

comment Can I use a Mustang bridge on a Fender Jaguar? Are there issues?
Shev and Carl - general guidance is to avoid the bold face stuff. It isn't hugely important, but adding stresses to words does impact readability unless used sparingly. There was a meta.se post on this.

comment How can I strengthen my fretting hand away from my guitar?
I guess it could do that, but I have found it working well for me. My fingers just toughened up, and I developed strength in each finger.

comment Beginner electric guitar, for specific genre (blues and classic rock)
Icarus, unfortunately there is no right answer possible here. The only things you could get are opinions, which rule this question out. As others have stated, there is nothing in the guitar that makes it 'metal' and you can find metal bands with any type of guitar - even acoustic!

comment Use different pickup for different group of strings
Well, yes they do. I have seen half-split pickups (which are very similar to bass-guitar split pickups) and 6-way pickups (which are especially used with MIDI guitars)

comment Do musicians count the meter all the time?
This feels like a rant, and doesn't seem to add anything new that other answerers have already posted.

comment What is the scale played on this chord progression?
Tim - I have edited to try and help focus on the chord progression, not the actual song.
