O.K. So the song is The Islander by Nightwish, but I can tell you the chords so if you can tell by that awesome. The chords are Bm (with some trills), A, G, D, and Em a few times.

D major, might be a different mode though. What order are the chords played in?
#8
It sounds really folky and most folkish/Celtic songs I know ARE in G so I think G wouldn't be a bad bet.

100% it's D because G has an Am and D uses an A major



Yeah, I forgot the second degree is minor lol. D it is

Damn people. I listened to the song and it's in B minor. Definately. This key has the same notes as D, but don't let that confuse you. TS, if you listen to the song, you'll hear that the progression "pulls" towards the B minor chord. Broadly speaking, that's what defines a key. It's hard to say for sure when you're looking at it on paper - just because all the chords fit in to one particular key, it doesn't necessarily mean it's in that key.

People need to stop believing that relative keys are the same thing; they're related, but still quite distinct.

Definately in B minor.

^Indeed. It's not a question of which one sounds "better", edwarde. Just because they share the same notes and key signature, it doesn't mean you can choose to call it either one.
