comment With sheet music, what happens with sharps and double sharps that are already sharped in the key signature?
Accidentals are nulled after the end of the measure they appear, but yeah, this is done. (According to Wikipedia, sometimes these courtesy accidental marks appear in parentheses, although I don't recall ever seeing this.)

To whoever left the downvote: Please consider commenting. Users can't learn to ask better questions if people don't indicate why they feel there's a problem.

comment How not to touch neighbouring strings?
I have to disagree with this. While touching other strings with your fretting hand usually isn't that big of a deal, the guitarist wants to be able to choose whether or not this happens or it can lead to sloppy fretting.

comment How can I prevent the noise my guitar pick makes?
These are good options. You can do a lot more with just your fingers than most people think.

Apoyando stroke instructional video. (I had to look this up, it's nice to learn something new!) I think I've been doing something like this but in reverse, sort of a reverse snap pulling up on the stings.

@ign - You might want to edit that into the question; some people never read the comments.

comment How to select a key-signature for a song
I've been working with a mandolin plater lately, so we tend to end up using the keys of G and D fairly often. I'm told those are easy on mandolin.

comment A guitar won't stay in tune, also dirty pickup selector
What might work is contact cleaner. I got rid of the noise in my headphone amp's faders this way. For more detail, see this answer on the AVP site.

comment A guitar won't stay in tune, also dirty pickup selector
Simply cleaning the nut may help. Also, if the strings gauge was recently changed, that could also be causing problems. Are the strings binding at the nut? (i.e., are the slots wide enough for the strings to freely move when tuning? They should be.) Is the nut a standard type or is it a locking nut?
