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...

^ If you are in 4/4, it doesn't mean the rhythm needs to be just straight one two three four. For example a basic rock rhythm is 3+3+3+3+2+2 (used by AC/DC and many other bands). It's still in 4/4....

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...

I don't know. But it seems to be a common thing to do with Mesa Mark amps. I have seen some other guitarists do it too. But yeah, that's just the 750 Hz slider - maybe that's an annoying frequency...

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...

I would say all of those pieces are modal. There's little to no harmony in them. And that's what's the biggest difference between modal and tonal music. Tonal music is more based on harmony - none of...

Yeah, the acoustic part with the augmented chord. I don't think it fit it that well. I don't know why but it just didn't sound right. IMO the harmony just didn't have the flow.

Yeah, again the same rhythm as in Mission Impossible (3+3+2+2). It seems to be the rhythm with the most flow in 5/4.
