Could be really any number of things: poor stringing; bridge issues; tuners slipping; different playing; nut problems... there are many things that could cause your tuning to be slipping.

The problem is that there's a gap between one half of what you're learning and the other half.

You're learning some theory but don't know how to apply it and a the same time you're learning songs...

Bleeding Mascara by Atreyu is also just about as basic as it gets.

I'd go with the Jackson because I have yet to play a single non-bass Dean that didn't feel like a toy. I've played a single Dean bass that was pretty nice but anything with 6 or more strings......

Gibson's entire schtick now is appealing to the vintage cork-sniffers, to be honest I don't even know what they're doing selling 7 strings these days. The people who want one can't afford it and the...

That's what's called a 'slide to nowhere', I think, it's been a while since I used this terminology. Basically there is no target note, the idea is more of an effect than a specific note. Basically...

A picked slide is where you pick the notes at both ends of the slide so, for example, you fret the 5th fret, pick, slide up to the 7th and pick the 7th when you get there. Obviously this sounds less...

It doesn't matter. The (non-existent) general case tells no one anything about you. Even then there is nothing to be gained from the information you want, even if anyone could provide it for you.

No idea, too many variables. I'm sure it's possible, whether it's a reasonable goal for you or not is a whole different question, and it's one that has no answer.

It will take as long as it takes.

Are you... looking at what she's actually doing? Listening to what tiny amount of her guitar is still present in that mix?

She's awful. There's no shame in it, but she is.
