First there was the time signature, then there was the bar, marking
the first beat.

What does a bar without a time signature mean?  Answer: whatever
you want it to mean.  How does the reader know that?

Have you considered forget-accidentals?  If there are long sections
without bars, that might be the best way, because the bars won't
matter.  http://www.openguitar.com/files/scales.pdf was done that way,
in meters like 30/4.  You don't have to do it in C. See the last pages
of it. daveA

The only technical exercises for guitar which are worthy of the
instrument consist in "Dynamic Guitar Technique".  I promise miracles.
