You really shouldn't compare classical music and popular music to each other. They are so different. I'm not saying classical is any better than pop but you just can't compare them.

Yes, a song can be in A dorian but the vast majority of contemporary music is tonal, so pretty much none of the songs you hear on the radio are modal. If a song was in A dorian, A would be the tonic,...

I listened to some of the songs on the soundtrack and they seem to mix major and minor. They used a lot of I, bIII, IV and bVII chords. But I'm not sure which song you are talking about.

Bass is tuned an octave lower so the strings are way heavier than guitar strings. The basic string gauge for bass is 40-100.

It is a Db7 chord in the second inversion.

The "IV7" (Ab7) chord is actually the dominant chord of Db major (which is also the next chord) so I would say there's a modulation to Db major. If you...

No, the relative major of C# minor is E major.

And both C# minor and E major share the same notes so it will sound exactly the same - what makes them different is the backing track. If the backing...

Use your ear to tune. It could be an intonation problem too. As sarcoplasm said, you need to compare the fretted 12th fret note and open string (or 12th fret harmonic) to each other.
