comment How do I fix a stripped pickguard screw?
Should I just fill the hole with toothpicks and re-drill a pilot, or is that overkill?

comment What's the proper right arm position for an electric guitar?
The only real answer is whatever is most comfortable to you. Your arm length and sitting/standing/strap position are all factors, but whatever lets you play comfortably. There are some great players out there with some goofy arm positions (check out Marty Friedmans's wrist position sometime).

comment Breaking out of pentatonic scales for guitar riffs
Consider that pentatonic scales are basically just the major/minor scales with the questionable notes removed. The notes that are left in the pentatonic scales are the ones that almost always sound good no matter how you play them. With that in mind, think of the left-out tones as color notes or passing tones. You don't want to linger on them, but they can be used to spice up an otherwise standard lick.

comment Is there a name for the screeching sound made when changing chords on a guitar?
It's definitely one of those things that's hard to "un-hear" if it bothers you. Try DR coated strings (or similar) if it's your own playing that's bothering you.
