comment Why is the G/F chord not shown?
The G chord doesn't have an F# in it, but the key of G does.

comment Recycling guitar strings
Because the question author is looking for a way to recycle the strings, not use a bunch of them for a one-time project. How many guitar sculptures can you make?

comment Should I learn to read standard notation?
I guess I write music the antiquated way, then. :)

comment Should I learn to read standard notation?
Is learning standard notation useless when writing music? Unless all you're writing is formulaic three-chord songs, then no.

comment Becoming a good guitar teacher
Unfortunately, the problem isn't teachers who stick to their schedules, it's teachers who aren't good at pacing the lesson so it ends at an appropriate time.

comment Looking for a specific device to secure a pick to your hand
The Jam Kat arrived today, and it's a very nice gadget, it's very easy to use. Unfortunately, I find that changing the angle of the pick pops it out of the holder. Perhaps there's something that can be done to correct this; I've emailed the manufacturer. But for playing straightforward rhythm, it's a clever device and I recommend it.

What is "doubt clearing"? I assume you mean off-time between students?

Not sure why only half the bounty was auto-awarded (I accepted this as the answer yesterday). See this meta thread.

@DRL - I cheated a little, I added the last point after kylex's answer to my question in the comments.

Is it possible you can contact the composer or their estate and simply ask?

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!
