This progression is from an Alice in Chains song "got me wrong".

It goes Ab E Gb
or
G# E F#

In B the progression: VI IV V {G# E F#} However this is not B major since the 6th is a minor not a major so the G# comes from somewhere or it's not in B major.

I was thinking this song was in either Db or B. How close am i?

Any help would be appreciated this one has confused me for a while.

Oh, gotcha. That song is pretty non-diatonic, since it features a lot of major chords that couldn't be in the same key with each other.

sounds like it's g#minor but with an accidental Bsharp in the I chord.

because then the progression would be I, VI, VII.

^ like they said, it's not diatonic.

^The major third trumps the minor third in many cases and this is one of them. The progression is in Ab major: I VI VII. Since there is an E note, Eb, acting as the fifth, that b6 must be called Fb. The progression in Ab Fb Gb in the key of Ab major.

FYI, there is no key signature for G# major, so that's why I chose to write it in Ab.
