You don't need to be able to play something to enjoy it or even understand the music. I listen to music with a lot of stuff I can't play. That doesn't mean I can't appreciate the music. I just listen...

^ Exactly.

BTW, why is singing about Satan and hell any worse than singing about war/horror? Dark lyrics fit dark songs.

Just because the lyrics mention Satan or are about Satan and hell and things like that doesn't mean they are satanic. You can sing about Satan/other dark stuff neutrally.

The song doesn't need to sound exactly the same when played live. I don't know why it wouldn't work with just vocals + acoustic playing chords. None of the overdubs were really that crucial to the...

But the thing is, there's no such thing as "theoretically correct". A chord progression can be unusual, but it's never against the "rules" to write something unusual.

Of course it's fine. If it sounds good, it is good. But you also could see the Am7 chord as an A7#9 without the major third (it appears in the chord before it, so it's still kind of there, even...

Yeah. That's exactly how your sound develops. You just start playing and figure out how your different playing styles work together. Band playing is a lot about listening to each other.

You need to tweak your amp settings. Of course the EMGs will sound heavier because they drive the amp harder. To compensate, you would need to turn the amp gain higher when using the SG.

11th is always assumed to be perfect. There are really no exceptions.

Maybe come up with lyrics first. They'll give you a good idea of the rhythm and phrasing. The text kind of guides the melody.

To me that D-F#m sounds more like a VI-i in F# minor (Slash also plays some F#m pentatonic licks over it). Also, the way it ends (F#m-E-F#m-E) has a pretty clear F#m sound to it.
