I play guitar on my own, at open mic nights, and as part of a weekly get-together for guitarists, and as part a reggae band, for fun.

comment What to call finger positions on fretless bass?
The stripes on violins are very much for beginners. They are coloured sticky tape, and it's soon removed for good.

comment Guitar recommendation for beginner with practice information
@yo' Yes. Although I know of at least one teacher (Jamie Andreas) who starts people off high up the fretboard, where less pressure is required to fret a note.

I don't think "cough up the proper share of any earnings" is correct because it implies that if you earn nothing, you owe nothing. The copyright owner sets the terms by which you are allowed to use the work. In many cases they take royalties managed by bodies like the PRS, but not always.
