I think it's good to know about modes, have a feel for how they sound and maybe even use them to learn your way around your neck.

HOWEVER, in my opinion it is most important to learn music by...

Yeah well now you only have 5 notes to choose from instead of 12.

That is the combination of notes that form the tuning is 15,625 instead of 2,985,984. A 99.47% decrease.

Do you, dawg. One of my heroes, Freddie King, played a 335 with his guitar hanging from one shoulder.

If anything, something like that will help you stand out.

I just want to quickly add that in my opinion, most people are more impressed by deep musicality / vertical playing over shreddy - horizontal playing.

A "b" note over an Am just makes an Am9. Not displeasing at all. However if you think it is too dissonant either don't use the b or resolve it to a c or a note.

My gear/tone and my playing is pretty much directly connected.

Most of the time, if my sound is not where I want it to be, I feel uninspired and thus play poorly.
