comment How can I get a song tabbed?
Is it possible you can contact the composer or their estate and simply ask?

This may be the best answer yet!

comment Building an electric guitar from scratch
While it's oriented towards acoustic guitars, the book Guitarmaking: Tradition and Technology is a classic and well worth browsing before approaching building any guitar.

comment Looking for a specific device to secure a pick to your hand
No, as I said, I'm looking for a device to secure a conventional pick. I've tried fingerpicks and thumbpicks, and I can get a better sound and be more accurate with conventional picks. But I keep trying these every few years anyway!

comment Need Help in Starting to Learn Guitars?
Nothing is an absolute, of course. As the conclusion says, there's no single "right" way to do this, but there are methods that will make it easier in the long run. If you find it easier to learn on an electric, then go for it!

comment Are there any headphones specially designed for guitar?
Amazon.com, $56.02 plus shipping. Not sure what you'd do out of the US.

comment Are there any headphones specially designed for guitar?
I use the Audio Technica ATH-M40fs headphones for tracking and overdubbing. They're the sort that cover your ear completely, so they'll screen out background noise well. They'll set you back around $55. A disadvantage is they they don't have a mini plug on the end, they use a full-sized jack, so you'll need an adapter cable, but they have extraordinarily flat response.

The Jam Kat might work if nobody can come up with the exact device. The fact that you can use it while writing is a plus. (i.e., it's good for songwriting or transcription work.)

Nice; not quite the device I saw, but very close in functionality. I keep a pick under the pickguard as well on my electric, I wish that were a feasible option on my acoustic!

@Paul - Perhaps this is useful - it obviously is to some people - but it's not what I'm looking for.

comment What kind of guitar for big hands?
An extreme solution to getting a guitar with a wide next would be to play a classical guitar (they have wide necks) or get a 12-string and string it with 6 strings (bad for the neck, but lotsa room). A guy I currently play with has large hands and plays mandolin quite skillfully, though, so I'm inclined to think this is mostly a matter of practice unless your hands are truly ginormous.

comment Guitar Fetish Pickups - Can anyone describe their tone and quality?
Have submitted a rewrite for review, but I'm not certain I didn't change the intent of the question.

comment Guitar Fetish Pickups - Can anyone describe their tone and quality?
This is a forum-style chatty question. Can you ask some specific questions about the tone of the pickup? It's difficult to answer "what did you think" in any useful way.

This is more of a comment than an answer, isn't it?

comment How to hide a flat pick in the right hand when switching to finger picking, Warren Haynes style
@the Tin Man - I've used the toss-the-pick many times, generally for one particular song that had a fingerstyle ending. It works well with a brightly-colored pick.

From the look I got at it, I suspect it was manufactured, but it was many years ago and memory can be fallible.
