Ok, so I'm getting into soloing in pentatonic, now only improvising Dani California solos...but because I'm one greedy bastard I want more, more, MORE!

I'm wondering in which keys are these songs (and solos in them) by RHCP so I can impro to them, I tried to figure it out myself but I'm a noob in that so your help would be nice

The songs are:

Scar Tissue

I Could Have Lied

Blood Sugar Sex Magik

Thanks in advance!

Ok, thanks. And someone knows in which key Blood Sugar Sex Magik is? There isn't really solo in it (well, there is in background, but it's not very hearable), and that's why I want to know how to make up one

E minor.

did you know the major scale on a piano, starting at whatever note (lets say E). you just go straight up the white keys without hitting a black one. and you got the major scale.

Technically you could play A minor pentatonic, as it's notes are all inside of F maj, save for the E, but it would sound a little off

quick note: i believe Scar Tissue is in F, but the solo sections are in d minor.

Know any good teachers in NY, especially skilled in teaching ear training? Tell me

I'm pretty sure that Scar Tissue is in D minor...
