comment How do professional accompanying musicians (seem to) figure out songs instantly?
I've seen this mostly with pop songs. I imagined that they probably base their progression choice on a "standard" song. But this leaves the question, how do they decide which? Not less importantly, how do everyone agree in the choice, seemingly wordless?

The ear-plug idea seems interesting, I'll try that =D

I'm sure that sometimes it is really staged. I failed to state the premise that, for the sake of the question, I'm obviously interested in the situations that aren't staged =D

comment How do you get into “deep practice” mode?
I beg to differ on "There's just understanding and practice, at least in my eyes(...)". Sometimes I do bring myself to pratice something and the sesssion is not efficient at all. Sometimes I take the guitar just to play something and end up making a major leap in some area. That's being in "deep pratice", "in the zone", "in the flow". It's not a magical concept, it's a state of mind in which you pratice more efficiently than otherwise.

comment Why is my neck pickup quieter when playing with both pickups?
The word for "pick-up" (in a guitar context) in Portuguese and Spanish is "captador" (meaning "something that captures [sound]"). I think he got caught in a false cognate and he actually meant the "pickupiness" (if there was such a word) is split. This sentence would make a lot of sense in PT or SPN, but I'd rewrite it in English as "[The middle pickup position] is designed to have the output signal be a mix of the outputs of both pickups."

comment What is “Phrasing” in the context of playing a Solo?
I think that your answer regards more how to 'ornament' an accompaniment. Phrasing is more about composing a melody yourself (even if 'on the stop', like when you improvise)

comment How to achieve a glassy, edgy solo tone?
Sorry for misleading you on that! Edited the question to avoid further confusion... great answer though, at the end of the day the study of his tone actually has some degree of relevance to the original question =D

comment Sharp / Flat: Collectively known as property by what name?
I think that the question is "what is the quality of 'accidental'" (as in, "'numbness': quality of being numb"). Or, "is there such a word as 'accidentality'?"

comment How to work out a strum pattern?
Not enough to make up an answer on its own, but what helped me (a lot) was to learn to understand, read and write rythm in standard notation.

comment Tips for trying out effects (at a guitar shop)
That's some good advice! By "starting sound", you mean just the pre-amp setting?

comment Mental approach to improvisation
The singing tip is indeed great. In fact, not long time ago I started using my cell phone to record musical ideas (by singing them), and it's good to get validation on that. I'll definetely add this concept to my improvisation pratice! Thanks! =D
