So the E minor scale and the G major scale are basically the exact same thing, just with different numbers for their positions?

Am I missing something?

No, you're correct. Whether or not it's the E minor or the G major is just really up to you and more about feel.

Same thing with time signatures, really. Lots of sheet music is written as 3/4, and lots is written as 6/8. They just choose based on feel really.

Btw, the 3/4 is just that "waltz feel," but 6/8 is usually more about having two slow quarter notes with three eighth notes apiece. If you need an example I could find one

Music is an art, man. Just like any art, a lot of the categorization is based on taste. Once you learn a lot of music you get a good sense of feel and taste.

Not with time signatures though, that feel you say it's actually the rhythmic stress points and that's kinda of related on how you define the measure (bar).

Yes, and it's stupid to use the minor as tonic. It just confuses but music is not engineering thus full of stupid people.

Same with A minor (Actually C), G minor, etc. The only reason to use it is if you don't touch the major tonic and if that's the case you're probably listening to stupid Electronic music.
