i was messing around with chord progressions, and i found one i liked, so im trying to figure out what key its in, so i have a question,

if i use the chords Dm, Am, Em, and Fm, what key would that be in?

i thought it would be C, because D, A, E, and F, all fall under the key of C, but im not to sure of that conclusion,

i posted this in guitar and bass basics originally, but someone recommended that i should come here, so, any help will be appreciated

C does have the Dm Am and Em, but the Fm is not in key. This does not fit into a key. You have to look at all the notes in the triad, not just the root note, liek you were saying in your post.
Gibson SG Standard
Ibanez S2170FB
Peavey JSX
Marshall 1960A
TEXAS A&M
