Hi guys, I'm having some problems finding the key of Like a Stone, the song is:

G5 Bb5 F5 G5
Eb5/Bb G5 D5/A D5

Eb Bb D Eb
Ebmin C D Gmin

It seems that the key is Gm, but:

1) C is not part of the G Harmonic Melodic nor the G Natural Minor scales.
2) Eb is not part of the G Melodic Minor Scale.

The solo seems to be part of the G Natural Minor scale (Dmajor). But in this case, the C in the bridge should be Cminor, the D chord should be minor too.

So, what's the key of this song???
Gminor it is. easier playing it in Aminor imo. Think thats how cornell plays it acoustically

Polaco The key is Gm shown by it either being Bb or Gm because the only notes he plays with accidentals are B as Bb and E as Eb (in the last section of the solo he plays every letter note), and the acoustical parts have D7 which is the seventh chord for Gm scale.
