thanks bro but i was wondering one thing though and my theory is a little rust but since it starts on an F5 power chord(cuz its drop d) and focuses on the F wouldnt it be F or am i completly wrong? if so someone please correct my ignorance.

Yes thats why i said F major. However seeing as its drop D I assume its a metal song? So maybe soloing in D minor might sound cooler. Thats my 2 cents

yeh c major could work too, but why use c major if you're starting on an F based chord?
#14
no your right

the reason being you can't always tell what key you are in based on the first chord. there is no b played anywhere. if there was B i would say C if there was Bb i would say F . since there is niether i would go wiht F
song stuck in my head today


#15
further more i would say that this is F major and not D minor

It would depend on rhythm and what value each chord is given. FOr all we know that F is a pickup note.

doubt its Gm coz of the E on the G string

Which is a major six, and would make it dorian. Not uncommon in rock.
