comment What is theory of music about?
I think you might also be asking about algorithmic composition. Google it. There are commercial and open-source music applications that employ heuristic routines to facilitate composing music.

comment Problems with 8 string guitar tuning?
What is the make and model of the guitar, and what is its scale length? Does the manufacturer list the gauge of each string that comes with the guitar? It would help us to know these things

comment A reliable foundation from which to understand what “key” really means
So you are an accomplished musician who is self-taught, by ear. That is commendable! It may be that you've gone as far as you can by yourself with no training, and now it's time to get a little formal training. Learning some piano from a teacher who knows theory would be really helpful. Piano is the best instrument on which to learn concepts like chord progressions, which are essential to understanding concepts like what is meant by a key.

comment How do i get a Zacky Vengeance sound on my electric guitar?
Based on what I found in the link in my answer, Zacky Vengeance relies on passive Seymour Duncan JB humbucker pickups, not active pickups. A Gibson or Epiphone SG Special with humbuckers would be pretty close to that pickup tone without the need for modification.

Welcome to Musical Practice & Performance. While we can help you with many of your questions here, this is not the best place to look for tabs or sheet music. It is also not a good place to look for someone who can teach you. There are other forums for that.
