You could have asked this in your other thread, but...

by the chords played and by the notes played. I'm too lazy to explain further.

As a bassist, I have to say this.

Ignorant guitarist.

Learn some scales or something. Seriously, find the notes in the song, find the respective scale, there you go.

Shut the hell up you ignorant 'musician'.
He wants to learn something new, give him a break.

To figure out keys, in one key or even 2 key songs (excluding songs with many key areas and so forth), find what all the chords are, analyse them.

example chord progression;

Cmaj | Dmin | Amin | Amin

Lets look at the first chord. Cmajor. So chances are this progression is in Cmajor.
In the C major scale we have C D E F G A B C
The chords that follow major scales are [Maj (I) min (ii) min (iii) Maj (IV) Maj (V) min (vi) Dim (vii*)] (*= dim - dont worry about this)

So looking at the chord progression we can see theres

Cmaj ( I ) Dmin ( ii ) Amin (vi)

So the progression is most likely I ii vi in the key of C


Now thats really basic shiz, it does get a lot more in depth than that.


If I made a mistake that I didn't pick up on, send me a PM or if you have anymore questions, it's all good brother.
