My understanding of key is that the key is defined by the tonic chord. If we are talking about tonal music and your tonic is major, you are in a major key and if your tonic is minor, you are in a...

As vayne92 said, it's all about the sound you are after. If the riff isn't too fast, you could try playing it both ways. Play it the way that sounds/feels better.

If I look at Thomann prices, the JS32Q is only 20 more expensive than the regular JS32 (and as I said, there was really no price difference between the hardtail and FR models on Thomann). That...

It also depends on how often the chords change. For example the solo section of Light My Fire is Am-Bm and it's two chords per bar. But if the chords don't change often, then I would also maybe think...

I think you are confusing keys with scales. They are different.

Melodic minor or harmonic minor are not keys. They are scales. You can use them both and natural minor in a minor key. You can also...

But yeah, you could use the mixolydian...

I have to add that the order of the notes doesn't matter in inversions. What makes it an inversion is the fact that there is something else than the root in the bass. But the other notes can be in...

Key of C major doesn't mean you need to use C major scale all the time. Key of C major just means your tonic is C and it is a major chord.

It is just not tuned to A=440Hz.

A=440Hz is not the only tuning there is. For example classical bands usually tune to A=442Hz.

It may also be that the tape was sped up/slowed down just a bit in the...

Yeah. Actually using a Bdim7 chord in C major isn't that rare. The b6 is a really common accidental.

But if we are talking about diatonic chords, Bdim7 is not part of C major. And I would first try...

Gmaj7 is not a key. Did you understand what I wrote? You just add sevenths to the triads of the harmonized major scale and that way you get all the possible 7th chords diatonic to the key.

I can guarantee that pentatonic is not the only scale that you'll ever need/want to use. It just doesn't work over everything.
