B minor / D major


Say what now?

Sure looks a lot like A major to me.

Isn't it a mode of D major, since it starts on the A note?

I don't know what the hell this D Major stuff is about, but that definitely an A Major Scale.

i looked both scales up and it can be a variation of both but A is usualy in a different place (from what i have seen)

Where you play a scale does not matter. It's the notes that matter. But that is the stock A major scale. No variation no nothing. Just look up the notes and you'll get A B C# D E F# G# that is A major.

Starting with the low E string, the notes are... A B C# D E F# G# A

The keys that have 3 sharps (F# C# G#) are A major and F# minor.

it is A major - end of.

anything else posted here - related to D is plain wrong. related to Ionian or modes in anyway is massively over-complicating it.
