I am having trouble figuring out keys of certain songs( like Rose of Sharon by KSE), gave anyone give me any help with figuring this out?
While listening to the song, play around on your guitar until you find the note that the song is revolving around. Whenever there's a resolution, it will be to that note, until the song changes key. It's fairly easy to tell whether a song is major or minor, too.
I just pick a string and start playing everything from open to the 11th fret. Play each note a few times and see which one sounds best throughout a few chord changes. Then see if playing a minor or major third sounds better.
is there anyway you can tell if you pick out all the notes that are played? like c-d-e-f-g-g#-a#-c? what key would that be in?
C D E F G Ab Bb is the C Hindu scale. That would probably be in the key of C major, if the song seems to revolve around C.
it does revolve around c, KSE always plays in drop c too.
