comment Tools to create drums backing track for non-drummer
You might want to rephrase the title of this question, since "best" is such a subjective term, and those kind of questions are discouraged on SE. From reading your question, perhaps "Tools to help create drum tracks for non-drummer", or "Non-drummer learning to program drum tracks"?

comment Why do these two songs seem impressive yet are easy to “sing”
@Anthony : if you want something to contrast "What's up" with, look at Lady Gaga's "Yoü And I", the first half of the verse is built around the same chord progression. It moves to G though, suggesting A Mixolydian.

comment Correct or natural left hand position when plays tabs w/o marking finger number
Yeah, I was afraid it might be, although it does lead to some easy things to play in the next few bars. Since you got a good answer from @Matthew Read I'll not spend more time on this. Thanks!

comment Correct or natural left hand position when plays tabs w/o marking finger number
Do you play this on an acoustic or electric? I ask because if you're playing it on an electric like I am, I'd be tempted to suggest shifting some of the positions around. Like the first section you've marked (Ab-G-Gb) I would play on the third string.

comment How do preamps and power amps compliment/replace guitar amplifier heads and combos?
You've got it all absolutely right! It's also what I see when people post pictures of their rigs in online forums, they're mixing and matching to look for their sound. Happy I could help you out, cheers!

comment What kind of guitar is used in Edenbridge's guitar solos?
In the example video it sounds to me like it's being played on a guitar that has a humbucker in the neck position, given the darker harmonics compared to a bridge pickup (I get the same kind of vibe from John Petrucci's playing when he switches to the neck pickup). But generally, yes, this sound is not difficult to attain.
