We name chords according to the root of the chord. Chords are built by stacking thirds on top of each other. The chord name "Am7" refers to "A" - root note; "m" - minor third; the fifth is assumed to...

If you are alternate picking, you use whatever stroke it happens to be. That's the point of alternate picking - you play down-up-down-up all the time. You can of course use economy picking too but...

I don't know... Stacking OD and distortion is not rare. If you are using a clean channel, it shouldn't be too much distortion. I mean, boosting a distortion pedal with an OD is basically the same as...

Just change the chromatic line. That's the only thing that needs to be changed. I agree with fingrpikingood. That sounds almost like a "sample" from Phantom of the Opera. Sounds like it was...

To me it sounds like you are talking about the descending and ascending chromatic melody line. I would say that's a pretty integral part of the song (Phantom of the Opera). If the rhythm is exactly...

It's such a cheap guitar that it wouldn't make sense to add a Bigsby to it. I mean, a new Bigsby will cost as much as that guitar costs.

Sorry, of course I meant 9, not 6. :bonk:

But the main point is, the open strings are not really chord tones. They are sustained from the previous chord - so they are suspensions, but they are never...

^ Is it this shape x 5 4 0 3 0?

You could analyze the open strings as some kind of "pedal points"/non-chord tones, maybe some kind of suspensions that don't really resolve. It's certainly a D major...

I'd prefer the first one. Isn't C HW usually used over a C7 chord? So in that way it would make most sense. It shows all the extensions. Having two thirds or two fifths is kind of weird. But it of...

It's all about context. IV-iv-I is one of the most common ones. But not the only one. Another common one is for example if we are in C major, C-G-Gm/Bb-F. So that's a minor v chord - though it kind...

0:20 authentic cadence

Yeah, there are really no plagal cadences in that song. Usually the I-IV-I plagal cadence is played in the end of the song.
