To figure out the key, you need to use your ears. Figuring out the chords also helps. Try to find the home chord (by listening). That's your key. Remember that it doesn't necessarily stay the same...

Yeah. Just start the minor scale with the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th note.

Like this:

R A B C D E F G
3 C D E F G A B
5 E F G A B C D
7 G A B C D E F

Those are the chords that you get by harmonizing...

You can always change string gauges. If you have light strings, I don't think tuning your E string to G is a big deal. I mean, some people use 11s in standard tuning, others (like me) use 9s. Some...

Your first concern is to make it sound like Em is your tonic. And the more chords you use, the harder it is to retain the phrygian sound. Em-Fmaj7 is the most typical progression. But for example...

Theory is pretty hard to understand without using your ears. (You can't really even understand it without using your ears, because music is all about sound.)

If you hear a rhythm and can't figure it out, slow it down. Also, instead of counting quarters, maybe count 8ths. Tap your foot to the beat.

It's all about knowing where the beat is.

You are in the key of E as long as E feels like the tonic. Playing a couple of accidentals doesn't usually change the key center. So yes, you are most likely still in the key of E. But it depends on...
