Pretty stright up question. I need help finding out how to get the key of a chord progression so I can solo over it. (Example F5 C5 G5 A5) or (Gadd9, Dm, Cadd9)
It just kinda confuses me.....
Would it be the starting note/chord of the progression?
My girl, my girl, don't lie to me,
Tell me where did you sleep last night

I listen for what i think the progression resolves to, in the case of the power chord progression it sounds like A minor.

I was kinda hoping to be taught how to fish...not handed the fish :P

For the first one it could be in C Major, A Minor, or if you threw in a Bb somewhere F Major or D Minor.
For the second could also be C or A Minor.

I would find out the notes of each chord, line the up in a logical order (A B C, Not C B A), compare your notes to those of all majors scales, find a major scale that uses those same notes, find the relative minor if you want.

^ wow thats a lot of work, i'd think it'd be easier to learn elementary theory and instantly know the root key.....

Well it's one way of looking at a chord progression without knowing too much theory. In my opinion it's easier then trying out root chords, and seeing if the other chords fit into that root.
