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

I mean, just look at G11. Or Gm11. We have #11 (for example Gmaj7#11) to note that the 11th is augmented. So it is C if it's not...

Yeah, if you want to learn arpeggios, learn them in context. You do nothing with shapes. You need to know how to use them. So learn songs. That's what you should do. Knowing arpeggios and all is...

You don't have to learn any arpeggios. What you "must" learn depends on what you want to learn.

Well, to me the second one has a lot more "improvised" feel to it. It is more progressive.

Why the second one works? Maybe it has a good flow - the ideas are connected to each other. Of course...

^ I don't know. Many songs have been written chords first, melody second. It's all about what works for you. But yeah, I think TS should try different methods. Try melody first. Try lyrics first.

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.

Oh, and remember...

In the key of A major the progression is A F#m Bm E. Why? Because of the key signature. You can also play it with major chords only. Most likely you are using the wrong shape for F#m. Use the Em...
