No, the relative major of C# minor is E major.

And both C# minor and E major share the same notes so it will sound exactly the same - what makes them different is the backing track. If the backing...

You can remove the 7th but it won't have as much tension as the chord with the 7th would have. It has more pull towards the I chord if you play them as dominant 7th chords and not as regular major...

Yeah, C is definitely not the root note of every chord.

I would call the Csus2#5 either an Fm6/C or a Ddim/C. I would call the C7sus2 a Gm/C and the next chord an Abadd#11/C. The Csus4#5 should just...

You just can't know why major scale works. People in Western culture started using it and all music is based on it. There are other "natural" scales in other cultures. For example if you listen to...

Maybe take it back to the store you bought it from and tell them to do a setup. They should do it for free.

Use your ear to tune. It could be an intonation problem too. As sarcoplasm said, you need to compare the fretted 12th fret note and open string (or 12th fret harmonic) to each other.

When you turn down your volume, you are using less power. Do your amp's speakers explode when you use less volume? I mean, just think about what you are asking.

I would say the bridge modulates to A major and the progression is A-G-F-D-A-G-F-G-D (I-bVII-bVI-IV-I-bVII-bVI-bVII-IV) and then it modulates back to D. There's just lots of non-diatonic chords. And...

Tonal music has a lot more tension in it than modal music. And harmony adds a lot of tension. You can use different chords for the same melody and you can make it sound different. In my previous post...

FYI, Marshall is a British brand, they didn't even make amps in the USA.

Also, used old JCM2000 DSL combos cost less than new DSL40 combos. And you can find them pretty easily.

Yeah, if it sounds fine to you, it is good.

What sounds bad to me in the augmented chord is the bass note. The Db7/F chord doesn't really move smoothly to the Aaug (if there's A in the bass). Maybe...
