No, and you really really need to elaborate on the intervals. What do mean by "E3" and "E7" (which refers to a dominant chord, and is most certainly not a power chord)?
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

I interpreted it is a power chord with its root in the 3rd or 7th fret of the E string.

Bb Major has an Eb in the key signature, so no. Bbm also has 5 flats in the key signature, and Eb is included as well.

Don't do that. No one knows what you're talking about. Use standard naming conventions to effectively communicate musical ideas.

So you know, you labeled B5 as E7; E7 is COMPLETELY different than B5 to an extent you can't imagine.


Please use standard conventions.

It could be in an bluesy key of E, but more likely Em. However, I think Bm is the best option.

What you mean is G5, A5, B5 and E5. Notes present are G D A E B and F#. How did you arrive at the key of Bb?

Step 2: Close eyes
Step 3: Point!

Good for you. I find that those who write their own stuff are far more motivated and are almost always better than those that simply choose to play other people's songs all the time.

Don't take any of the corrections personally, they're here to help.

Yes, most likely. Still, explain how you arrived at Bb.

My friend told me it was in the key of b flat becasue there were no sharps or flats in it or something. I dont remember it exactly, you'd have to ask him to find out. But like I said Im still pretty new to it all so dont take me as a complete idiot. Lol

I think Tenor Sax may be a Bb instrument as well.

Don't worry about what I'm talking about. C is the key on guitar with no sharps or flats.

And your riff actually does contain sharp notes as the 5th of some of the chords.

at the time i was playing e pentatonic actually, but i usually throw in seconds and sharp 5ths when i use pentatonic scales (only if it fits) making it minor i guess.

That makes no sense at all, actually. The minor contains no 2 and has a 5, not sharp 5.

I'm guessing he's confusing #5's with b6's and is saying he's doing pentatonic but with natural minor bits thrown in.

Anyways, lol at tenor sax player. He's like, bridging the gap between written and concert pitch in some sick, twisted way. C major on a tenor sax(no flats no sharps) is concert Bb major so I guess...maybe it's possible to see why he made such a mistake...

As it's been said, looks like B minor, but there are also other possibilities. Any key that contains the notes in those chords(including the fifths). And yes, PLEASE don't write your chords all weird. That threw me(and a couple others) for a bit of a loop.

G5, E5, B5 and E5

G D E B and F#

this progression could easily be in the key of Gmajor

but i can see the Bminor stronger than G maj
song stuck in my head today

yes, b6 is definity a better wording for what i was saying, but to whoever said i was wrong.... unless F# decided to stop sounding the way it does, there is a 2nd in the E minor scale. why are there major 2nds in minor scales? who knows.
and flat 5ths? now we're talking diminished lol

I misspoke on the b5; I was thinking of the minor blues scale, it's been corrected.

But you said you "made it minor" by adding the 2; that's not at all what defines a minor scale though.
