That's a great cover! I'm not a fan of True Blood, but I love the song! Did you record the instrumental too? If it was, the mixing is pretty good, very solid tones. And very good vocals, I just...

It gives the song a very interesting twist. My criticism would be more on the mixing side, the acoustic and your voice are a little too low, and your voice could use some reverb, but good job!

I have a focusrite scarlett, it's great. I had a few problems setting it up (some driver incompatibility with my windows version) and their costumer support was simply amazing.

Yes.

Again, as I said, you are in the key of A minor. The notes which are diatonic (ie, occur naturally) to the key of A minor are A, B, C, D, E, F and G. The minor pentatonic is just a reduction of...

The minor pentatonic is derived from the minor scale. In the case of A, the minor scale would be comprised of A, B, C, D, E, F and G. Using the chords from the scale, your vi would actually be a VI,...

Octaves have nothing to do with it. Both 024000 and 022002 are Emadd9 chords. The difference is in the construction of the chord: the 9 and add9 chords are built in stacked thirds, therefore made of...

This is very, very wrong. The E chord which substitutes the G for an F is the Esus2 chord (E-F#-B). Emadd9 adds the ninth, it does not replaces the third with it.

Yes. The Em9 contains the root, third, fifth, seventh and ninth (E-G-B-D-F#), while Emadd9 doesn't have the seventh (E-G-B-F#). The chord you asked about, 022002, is Emadd9, it's notes are...

You could easily use inversions here, to create an interesting motion between the bass and soprano voices. You could go:
