I don't even know which one is more common. I could name dozens of songs that use the one that starts on minor chord. But yeah, both are very common.

Well, there are many ways of doing it. But if the song is a basic pop/rock song in 4/4 time signature, most of them follow a similar structure. The verse riff lasts 4, 8 or 16 bars before moving to...

^ Why would the Bm be Bm7?


If E feels like the home, that's the key. But I can't tell for sure without listening to the song.

Figure out the notes in the chords. That way you'll figure out what they are called. It's also good to listen to what the chord sounds like.

x3777x - C#

x997xx - Gdim

You shouldn't just decide "now I'm going to play this scale and now I'm going to change to this scale" randomly. If the key of the chord progression doesn't change, I see no reason in changing the...

Well, actually the notes kind of do change. The sound of a note depends on the context. Let's say we are in the key of C major and play a G note over our progression. Then we modulate to F major....

In context it does matter. Out of context it doesn't. I would get confused if I saw an A# used in the key of F major. That note has a way different function than Bb. Bb is the fourth scale degree of...

The strings are not really supposed to be played individually.

Well, all diatonic scales have all the seven letters in them (A B C D E F G). A diatonic scale can't have A and A# in it. Also, the key signature should not mix sharps and flats.

Yes, and Fmaj7#11 is diatonic to C major.

Whether we should call it a maj7#11 or maj7b5 is a lot about notation. If it's not actually a Cb, I don't think we should call it an Fmaj7b5.

The chord name doesn't really tell about the voicing. Omitting the fifth from your voicing is very common, and I guess in this case it would even be advisable.

And I explained why Fmaj7#11 would...

What makes the song you posted have a creepy feel to it is also the dragging tempo.
