That would be F# major, but you need to write that F as an E# because you can't have f and f# in the same key, at least in majors i mean.
#5
well, for a generic chord structure, the key is most often defined as the first chord or note, in your case, looks like you're in the key of F
#6
It doesn't even matter. You have seven distinct notes and that's all you need. That's my excuse for being too much of a bum to actually figure it out.

X2, except he uses the minor 7th AND major 7th (flatted and non-flatted) which is pretty cool so yeah I thought I'd point that out.

EDIT: Threadstarter, which note do you consider the root?

maybe G flat or E flat minor but i have no idea what it sounds like or the structure of the notes do you play f f#..... in order, probably not so there is no way of really helping you
