I was messing around with my guitar and I wanted to know if there is a way to know what key does a particular chord belong to, is there some kind of chart or list or something? For example, what key is the C chord or the D7 chord? I do not want to learn much theory, I was just wondering how this stuff works.

if you figure out the notes in say, a D7 chord, you look at what scales it could possibly be in.
D7 is D, F#, A, C.

the key of G major has the notes G, A, B, C, D, E, F#.
(which contains the notes of a D7 chord)

soooo, D7 in the key of G major.


EDIT: see what i mean?

Change that attitude and read the theory lesson in my sig. The basics aren't that hard.

shes right, the basics of music theory are very simple.
if you learn the easy stuff all the hard stuff comes quick.

I wouldn't go that far. Hard stuff is hard, so don't be discouraged if you encounter some difficulties when you try to learn this material. However, understanding the basics makes learning the hard stuff possible to learn. You can't be solving improper integrals without knowing how a limit works (this has nothing to do with music but anyone who knows math will get the analogy).
