If it sounds good, it sounds good. Thinking too much into theory can be stupid sometimes.

Especially if you don't know everything about theory, and when you stumble into a legitimate melody that doesn't fit what you learned in music theory, that doesn't mean its not a legitimate melody

Yeah, you can always learn why it works later.

4ths, especially in jazz make for really weak harmony. But weak doesnt mean wrong. Its just different.

Don't ever let your perception of theory dictate your music, always let your ear tell you what works best.

Yeah, this post. 4ths aren't exactly common for harmonizing melodic lines. In metal, 3rds, 5ths, and octaves are most common but they get boring after a while if the melody isn't especially awesome in the first place. Personally I thought the 4ths sounded cool. Optionally you could use a variety and have two guitars play similar melodies instead of identical ones. This makes for some really interesting sounds but it's harder to do.
i don't know why i feel so dry

I might be missing something, but I didn't see any harmonic fourths on the GP score.

Maybe I should actually listen to it.

I see it now. I don't know, I'd just call those inverted fifths, to be honest.
