Guitar playing is a lot about chords. I think you just need to find songs you like and learn to play them - it does get boring if you don't enjoy the songs you are playing. All songs have chords in...

Just write an ending to it - you could use a generic fade out if you can't come up with anything else.

I liked it. I would pay attention to playing rhythmically accurately. It wasn't sloppy but it...

Seems like the guy who figured out the chords doesn't know theory (and doesn't really have a good ear either). G minor has flats in it, so D# should be Eb and A# should be Bb. I know it looks...

^ I think why I hear it that way is because of the chord that comes before it (Am6) and the chord that comes after it (Em). Sounds like a ii-V-i to me.

Yes. But the position you are playing doesn't matter. What matters is the tonic. Everything is related to the tonic. C phrygian is a lot closer to C minor than F minor when it comes to sound.

Adding bass would also be a good idea - the sound is a bit empty. Definitely try doing something more interesting with the drums.

It's not the scales, it's how you use them. A scale is not going to make you sound like somebody. You can do a lot with just one scale. A lot of rock solos are just minor pentatonic but still they...

Chord naming has a lot to do with context.

Gm6 and Em7b5 with G on the bass are really the same chord. You just usually use Gm6 rather than Em7b5/G because it's easier to write and read and also,...
