I did a pocket version of that show a while ago, playing the bass, and the guitar player did what Alan, Chea and Sean are saying: he played mostly 3-note chords, creating more of an interesting...

Rests are there to indicate silence. If there is a note completing the bar, it indicates you sustain the note for that duration. If there is a note followed by a rest, it means you stop sustaining...

In simple terms, that is pretty much it.
But pay attention to one thing you said:



In a way, you can think of a scale a a collection of "safe notes" in a key. But they are not, by any means, the...

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...

Your confusion starts here. Dorian is a mode, not a key. You can have a song in D minor using the Dorian mode, but not on D Dorian.

I listened to the Cake version, I still hear just E, but if you prefer it with Em, go right ahead, music is always subjective.

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

C (x32013), B7 (x21202), G7/B (X20001), Am (x02210)

or

C/E (032013), B7/F#...

No, I believe you are right. In a cadence, it has to be by a step down. I think in other chords it can be kept as a common tone or go by step up or down, as if it were a passage note, to "soften" the...
