B major, I think, didn't have time to work it out properly, but that's what it looks like to me.

The question you're asking is what key it's in. And it looks like B major

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

i dont understand how it can be B when the only B it has is a Bb?

B major contains many of the notes, but it is not the correct key.

It's in Drop-D tuning, which is very important. Firstly, it eliminates an occurrence of E(first two notes), and makes it easier to classify that the tonic of whatever scale structure we're using is D.

To answer your question directly: The top line is in D minor with chromatic passing intervals Db and Eb. The Db(also enharmonically called C# in the context of D minor) is used twice, hinting at a major 7th(rather than a minor 7th) in our D minor, implying the D harmonic minor. Represented as D natural minor or D harmonic minor, you have chromatic passing tones. Given the strength of the C# as the last note of the top line, I'd call this D harmonic minor.

The bottom line uses D minor blues scale with one chromatic passing note(Eb, fret 6 of string 5, second to last note of the bottom line).

In terms of key, this is the key of D minor(also called F major). In standard notation, the key signature has one flat.

In metal, hard rock, screamo and that sort of stuff, chromatics like this are relatively common. You have to be careful when analyzing the harmonic structure, because not all of the notes will be part of the scale, so the fact that a riff all fits in one scale or another doesn't mean that the harmonic center(in this case D) is the harmonic center of that chosen scale. For instance, D harmonic minor can also be called F ionian augmented. The notes are as correct, but D is the home note, therefor F augmented is not the correct scale.

Hope this helps. Cheers.

The B scale is: B C# Eb E F# Ab Bb B
