Any help from you guys is much appreciated. I need to learn this song by ear for my jazz band test. Our director says its supposed to help with ear traing which i will be happy to oblige. Anyway i need to know the key of the guitar in this video to learn it. I also will need to make an 8-12 bar solo, but thats no problem.

So i need the key.

crap the link wont embed

well i cant get the stupid link to embed. So just go to jazztube.com and search for wes montgomery and then find the "yesterdays" video

Hey! I just happen to be working on this song -- I'm using the Signature Licks
transcriptions by Wolf Marshall.

It's def in the key of D minor/F major.

It's an ABAB format. A = 8 measures of basically a ii7b5-V7-i progression, B =
8 measures of descending dominant 4ths.

I've got it memorized head thru the 1st solo and a bit into the 2nd solo...

Here's the A section:
| Dm7 - | Emin7b5 A7 | Dm7 - | Emin7b5 A7 | Dm7 - | - - | Bmin7b5 - | E7 - |

B Section:
| A7 - | D7 - | G7 - | C7 - | F7 - | Bb7 - | Em7 - | A7 - |

Sometimes the dominants are 9ths or 13th or altered (A7#5, b9)
