comment Is a composition of a major triad constant in a key
If you're looking at the tones of the chord in relation to itself, you would use the chord tones (root, third, fifth). If you're looking at the tones of the chord in relation to the key, you would use scale tones (fifth, seventh, ninth). The second scenario is most commonly used when discussing voice leading - that is, how to join two chords in a key together. For example, the seventh scale tone (third of G major) resolves to first (root of C major)

comment Why does the neck of a bass get wider?
Good point about the mechanics of - essentially - stretching a string on a stick. :)

Expanded to apply to stringed instruments in general, as suggested by Todd Wilcox.

comment new at electric guitar need help
Guilty! I also forgot the guitar... :) As to breaking the "rules": yeah, I've seen and heard all sorts of crazy combinations. I thought that the above would be a good starting point, especially since there are simple to understand reasons behind it.
