comment How to create guitar tabs with similar notation to Japanese Band Scores?
I'd be surprised if SoftwareRecs.SE had a better audience for a question such as this, as it's highly specific to notation. Anyway, I would expect to be able to accomplish this with any full-featured professional notation software.

comment Is it possible to play Jordan by Buckethead without kill switch?
Is your question about playing Jordan without using a kill switch at all, or implementing an equivalent without modifying your guitar?

comment Is there a name for this ending tag?
"Tag" isn't really such a bad answer on its own.

comment Is there a name for this ending tag?
A vamp is a section (usually an intro) that can be repeated. Coda is more plausible (but is different from a vamp), and would typically indicate some number of full measures of music.

comment What is a “stunt guitarist”?
@WheatWilliams I think you're mistaken -- "Impossible guitar parts" was a common credit for Vai on Zappa's albums, and I can't find any references for Belew being credited with the same.

comment How to use my mac and MIDI keyboard as a simple always-on piano
I do just that pretty frequently. There is a tradeoff between performance and sample quality (SimpleSynth could do the same thing with a fraction of the resources), but when you're running 16 gigs of RAM it's less of an issue.

comment writing in 3/4 time
In a typical music curriculum, dotted quarters in 3/4 are completely normal. Triplets are kind of an intermediate reading skill, but any tuplet with a number other than 3 is considered advanced.

comment Why does the V6 chord sound so different from the plain V chord?
Your notation here is confusing. A V/VII chord in D would be a secondary dominant, G major triad resolving to bVII (C). A/C# is understandable, but when using roman numerals, the inversion should be notated with figured bass as V6 or some variation.

comment What is and what is not syncopation
The technical term for your "Amazing Grace" example is anacrusis. This is synonymous with "pick-up".

comment How do I write an original melody?
@NeilMeyer I agree they are similar topics, but this one is stated in a way that I believe is a common sentiment (good for SEO). The current close reason of "too broad" doesn't apply IMO.
