I wasn't sure where to ask this, since im playing with an electric i opted to post it here. Ive been grabbing up all the rock and blues backtracking i can find to play to in A minor ( more for learning pick control and finger control and making it fun, yes im that new) . Anyway i found this awesome backtrack site http://www.guitarbackingtrack.com/ which has tons of songs on it. problem is how do i tell what the song is played in? My ear is not developed enough because i cant recognize them at all. Is there another way to tell?

again, sorry if this is a newbolicious question, i really did try to pull some of these off by ear.. Im just not there yet.

thanks.

at GBT a lot of the blues tracks, are named after thier key.

also, look here for specific keys in looping tracks.

if its not in the name, you'll have to go by ear.

in most, if not all, easier backing tracks, the first chord is the key. try to match a note from your guitar to the first chord in the song. also, keep in mind that guitar is an easily transposed instrument (Bminor is Aminor up 2 frets, for example), so don't worry about playing in 1 key
