wont hurt anything, though the shielding wont be as good as on a instrument or patch cable.

keep 'em short, and away from electrical noise (power cords, lights, etc).

I would not recomend it at all. The noise will be to much, and it is not the correct impedance for instrument cable. Shielding is the key to a good instrument cable.

I played a gig with a speaker cable as a guitar cable and a guitar cable as a speaker cable. Blew the speaker and had a mad hum throughout my riffs.
