If you are an originals band, play as many originals as possible, because you want people to listen to your own songs, right? And people won't listen to your songs, unless you play them. I would say...

You don't necessarily need an amp (though I think it's a good thing to have) - you could get a DI box. I have heard that Behringer makes a good cheap copy of the Tech21 Sansamp Bass Driver.

I hate using WHWWHWHWHWHWHHW or whatever when talking about scale structures. I would suggest using scale degrees instead. Because everything is related to the tonic.

How so? I could find a lot of metal songs with a major 6th. For example a lot of Metallica solos use it. One example that comes to my mind is the end of the solo in Enter Sandman. Also, NWOBHM bands...

Even with small hands power chords should be 100% doable. I mean, you only need two fingers to do them. It's not a stretch, even if you had really small hands.

Yeah. Just start the minor scale with the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th note.

Like this:

7 G A B C D E F

Those are the chords that you get by harmonizing...

You can always change string gauges. If you have light strings, I don't think tuning your E string to G is a big deal. I mean, some people use 11s in standard tuning, others (like me) use 9s. Some...

If you hear a rhythm and can't figure it out, slow it down. Also, instead of counting quarters, maybe count 8ths. Tap your foot to the beat.

It's all about knowing where the beat is.
