comment Alternating fingers or direction?
Well, up-down with one finger will sound different if you have short or long fingernail for example (with a short fingernail you can make the downward strike sound just like the upward strike, and with a longer fingernail or a more horizontal position on the downward strike it will sound different, similar to using plectrum)

comment Why are there many guitarists, but only one drummer in a band?
I've seen rock bands with 2 drummers. Even Radiohead used 2 drummers on their latest album/tour. The guys in Molotov (a mexican band) sometimes play 2 basses, or 2 drumsets (they change instruments; the drummer doesn't always play drums, the bassist doesn't just play bass, etc)

comment What are the patterns of the minor scales
An easy way to remember the melodic minor: it's just like the major scale, but with a minor third.

comment X or Y guitarist doesn't know music theory - how true is this statement?
what? um, tension and release in the V-I progression: the tritone in the V chord (the dominant with its v-vi-iv notes; the tritone is vi-iv) is very dissonant and creates a tension that is resolved in the I chord, where the notes from the tritone change from vi-iv to i-iii.

comment X or Y guitarist doesn't know music theory - how true is this statement?
Not necessarily. They may know about the tension and release, but do they know why? Not that it matters much if they know why, as long as they know how to use that progression.

When you say "intuitive or musical level" I guess you mean empirically. Empirical knowledge of music is not music theory. Not saying it's bad or anything, just taht it's NOT theory.
