How is the minor scale the most versatile? And I wouldn't start learning exotic scales now (unless you are really into Indian music). I would first learn to use the basic scales. You can do lots of...

I would say learn new songs. I would learn stuff in context. Technical exercises may be boring. But if you can practice the same technique by playing good songs, it is a lot more fun.

Yeah. It's not that good gear makes you play better. Bad gear just makes you play worse. But a good guitarist playing a bad guitar and amp will still sound really good.

It's the wrong word to describe what people meant. I think what cdgraves meant was that there's more to music than just pitches. If you play the right pitches and do nothing with dynamics and that...

It's in C major using C-F-C-Am progression in the verse and Am-C in the chorus. The bassline uses a b7 accidental (Bb) in the verse (in the end of the progression).

^ I don't think boring playing comes from staying in one box shape. But many boring players only stay in one box shape. But certain stuff just can't be played in just one box shape.

The order of flats and sharps in major keys comes from the major scale. The pattern for the major scale is root, major 2nd, major 3rd, perfect 4th, perfect 5th, major 6th and major 7th. Let's take C...

The part with those chords sounds like G#m to me (VI-VII-i). The "sus4" notes in the chords are just added notes. The guitar plays the open B string in every chord so I would just say it's a pedal...

I don't think you can really understand keys without scales.

But I agree that it is pretty pointless to learn all the exotic scales. Learning 1000 scales isn't going to make you a better musician....

Why just jazz songs?

Pink Floyd - Money is one of the most popular 7/4 songs. Though I don't see why a jazz band couldn't play that song too.

Why the intro sounds so dissonant is because the bass and guitar play notes that don't really sound "good" together. I wouldn't put the intro in any key. I would say the verse is i-ii-iv-V in F#m.

Yeah, but if you just use triplet feel, 4/4 is more simple, so that two 8th notes are actually 4th triplet note + 8th triplet note.
