comment What do I need to know about drums as an electric metal guitar player
There are essentially two questions here: 1) how to gain an understanding of the basics of playing the drums for a non-drummer and 2) using that, how to find and use loops and backing tracks to play over for rehearsal.

comment When we sing loudly does volume change or pitch?
The way you have asked this question indicates that you do not understand what "pitch" is. That is a very fundamental concept.

Maybe. The Jimmy Page mod is not likely to be found on a stock import Dean guitar.

That would involve different capacitors for tone controls in a passive design, or active equalization in an active design (if your Dean guitar has a compartment for an internal battery, then there is an active tone circuit or preamp on board.)

comment Four dots over tremolo minim (half note with slash)
There is another kind of notation for a "two-note tremolo" which is an alternation back and forth between two notes or two chords. In that kind of notation, the slash strokes are positioned between the stems of two adjacent notes or chords.

comment Four dots over tremolo minim (half note with slash)
Yes, it is a tremolo. "One-Note Tremolo" is in fact the technical term for this type of notation, the slash through the stem of the notehead. (it may also go by other names.) That is how this symbol is referred to in the Sibelius and Finale music notation programs, and in texts on music engraving.

+1 for adding the image of the score so we can see the exact notation.
