the key that the song is in means what scale the notes fall into. sorry, but thats the best way i know how to explain it lol.

and other than a spelling mistake or two, your english is actually alright. in fact, id say its better than a lot of people on here

"in the key of" tells you what the notes are played over, or what scale they're from. In the key of C means most of the notes are coming from a C scale. And in the key of D means the notes are from a D scale. It just tells you the basic chord movement of the song.

And I agree. Your English is pretty good. I'm native, and i still have 2 English classes this year, and I'm still failing both of them.

Actually The number of sharps or flats determines what key your in. The C major scale and it`s relative minor scale (Am) have no sharps or flats, the G major scale and it`s relative minor(Em) have one sharp(F#) D major(Bm) have two sharps, F major(Dm) has one flat (Bflat). So when you look at a piece of Music and it has only one flat in it`s key signature than it`s in the key of F,which in turn means all the notes would come of the F major scale. Any notes not from the F major scale would be considered accidentals (Any sharp or flat except B flat would be called an accidental in the key of F)
