comment How transition smoothly multiple guitar recordings?
Are you recording to a metronome click-track that you listen to in your headphones while you play your guitar into the microphone? Recording each phrase to the same rigid tempo with a click track will be essential.

comment Guitar set up/maintenance
The larger problem, however, is that each of these separate set-up tasks is somewhat inter-dependent upon other settings and calibrations on the rest of the guitar. It requires a "holistic" approach.

comment Guitar set up/maintenance
In order to make the topic less broad and more acceptable, perhaps you could ask separate questions "How to Set Up a Tune-O-Matic Bridge on an Electric Guitar", "How to Set Up a Floating Tremolo Bridge on an Electric Guitar", "How to Set up A Nut", "How to Set Up Neck Relief with Truss Rod Adjustment", etc.

comment How Do Time Signatures Affect a Song?
Music is not just a sequence of notes played in the right order. Groups of notes are organized into beats. Some notes are played louder and harder than other notes, to emphasize the beats. Time signatures show you where the beats are. This is what makes rhythm.

comment How to determine whether a song is considered musical plagiarism?
A song is considered plagiarism only when a judge in a court of law makes a ruling that plagiarism has occurred. Up until that point it is only alleged to be plagiarizing.

comment Why is the double bass the only instrument in the violin family tuned in fourths?
"Relatively modern invention"? No way. The current E A D G tuning, in fourths, was used by the violone almost two hundred years before the invention of the cello. What we have today with the modern double-bass is a return to the original tuning of the violone, which is older than the cello, viola and violin. See my answer.
