H flat. You will never learn if your spoon fed. Take out a instrument and find what time. Listen to the bass for starters

LOL believe me, i've tried to figure out myself. But I don't know how to figure out if i'm right or wrong. So far I've come up with Em/G. If someone could tell me what key this song was in, I could actually try to figure out and understand why it was in that particular key :p

Develop this skill - pressing the pause button. I'm serious.

Listen to his voice, and at the end of every phrase that he sings, hit pause. What note does he land on the most?

Press pause after every lyric. You can hear where his breaks are. What note is it? "The good times will be on me"

"Queen of portland street"

"Saturday night"

Even better, transcribe the harmonica. What note does he land on at 0:10 and 0:18?

Thank you so much! I'm not 100% confident, but I think it's in the key of G, woo :)
