I don't know what bands you like but bands like AC/DC and Kiss are pretty straight forward and their songs aren't that hard to figure out by ear. Or you may just learn the rhythm parts of songs you...

What you are looking for has more to do with songwriting than music theory. You'll learn to write Pantera like riffs if you learn to play a lot of them and just use your ears. Learn to play them by...

Yeah, it sounds like it would resolve to C. The melody part over the C power chord chugs sounds kind of dissonant and sounds like it wants to go to C. In the end you could play a C and it would sound...

You should wear earplugs in all concerts (except for some jazz or classical or unplugged concerts - and that also depends, some of them are also pretty loud).

^ Yes. The tab should use the actual chord names. But as I said, you can treat the guitar as a transposing instrument (when it's in a standard like tuning). That means the chord quality stays the...

If the song is in alternate tuning, I think it should be tabbed in alternate tuning. Some voicings are impossible to tab in standard tuning.

You could also look at it as an unresolved ii-V.

Also, Abm7 is really close to Cb major (Abm7 = Cb major + Ab in bass) so it may sound a bit like Cb-Db vamp. I don't even know if the organ is...

About that song you posted - it sounds like a dorian vamp. So to me sounds like the F is the major 6th and Ab is the tonic.

Just listen to the chords the organ plays - sounds like i-IV (Abm7-Db7).
