comment Acoustic guitar: How to stop right index finger nail from wearing away?
A combination of holding the pick with more of it exposed as well as clear nail polish on my index finger nail seems to be doing the trick. The trick is to put the nail polish on in several layers, with the intent of it wearing away slowly over a few hours.

comment Are there alternatives to developing calluses when learning guitar?
This would be a much better answer if you had used the product or could tell us something that's not "in the brochure", so to speak.

comment Why can't I whistle and hum different notes at the same time?
Noldorin - Humming and whistling would be on-topic, certainly, so why not the combination of the two? Or am I missing the point?

comment Vertical wall mount / Holding a guitar by the neck
@Rafael - You're looking at that page as if it were a page here on music.SE. It's not, it's a luthier's personal take on these issues. I think the phrase is a bit wordy but clear.

comment Vertical wall mount / Holding a guitar by the neck
@Jduv - I did that with my parlor-sized steel-string that hangs on the wall of my living room, but more because the headstock is so small relative to the hanging brace thing.

Frets.com's answer to this: Where should I keep my instrument? In the case, on a stand, hanging on the wall?

comment Acoustic guitar: How to stop right index finger nail from wearing away?
Screw you, world, you couldn't have told me this two decades ago? :) Seriously, yeah, this is it. Gotta work on how I hold the pick. Until then, a small band-aid or maybe a fingerpick will hold me over for rehearsals and gigs.
