Well this model of the RG series doesn't have a tremolo system at all, it just has a fixed bridge so that's not the issue. More info about the guitar is here: http://ibanez.wikia.com/wiki/RG2EX1 And...

What can I do to improve the sustain on my electric guitar?

Sounds good, I'll try working those notes into the melody I have so far! And I know the G is actually a double sharped F, I just put G to avoid any possible confusion.

What key should you use for a melody when you use chords that aren't diatonic?

Hey, so I'm working on a song based in C# minor and for the second half of the chorus I want to use a progression of E major-D# major-D major-C# minor (has kind of a bluesy sound to it). I want to...

I hate to say this, but you're wrong. Palm muting on one string is a common technique, you just tilt your right hand so your palm is only touching the bridge at one string, it's not that hard once...

Any tips on where to put a pick when going from picking to slapping and popping?

Are you familiar with the concept of phrasing? Try listening to how vocalists and wind players play melodies and try to emulate how they play their notes.
