Ok i have a question ive been looking at the major and minor pentatonic scales and im looking at a song that i believe is in "A" but im not sure now (the notes are "F#m A D E Esus4) any way i was wondering how do u figure out if a song is in a minor cause i cant figure out when to play my minor pentatonic
P.S.
i dont want to sound stupid but i really am confused

well if its in "A" then its major. If it's in "Am" it's minor. lol.

Looks like an acoustic song. Most likely it's major.

it depends on the context. since the first chord is F#m, and the relative minor of A is F#, i'd guess its in F# minor.
O.S.I.

no i mean obviously that song is in "A" but ive looked at a lot of songs and i havent found one in a minor pentatonic and im wondering if there is a trick or something

well, the relative minor of a major key is its 6th degree.
A major scale: A B C# D E F# G#
The sixth degree is F#, so the relative minor key is F#m. You would play your F# minor pentatonic.
