The first chord of the chord progression in the song.


90% of the time it's the easiest way to figure it out.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

Fail

TS, you need to work out what notes re in the song.
Which you can do buy finding the chords of the song, or by pulling apart a riff or solo.
If you want a better idea, I'd suggest asking in the Musicians Talk forum and reading the stickies there

Normally the key fo a song is the note that always seems like "home." its always startign on that note. So not,not always the first chord or note played. the repetition of a rythem,its the first chord or note there. figure that out and you found the key to the sogn.now this is basic format, Some songs change keys in the song but for most part thats the Key.

usually the ending chord since most songs resolve to the tonic chord
Main gear
  • ESP Eclipse II Standard (BK Cold Sweat)
  • ESP Horizon NT-II Standard (SD '59/JB)
  • Marshall JVM 410 Combo

Usually its the first note and last note ( home note ) .
And most better way to find out key is a looking the key signs ( # , b )
