I enjoy C natural minor but I like playing in modes based around the c diminished chord.

I often use D minor, and despite my metal influences, I hate soloing in Em.

I write quite a bit in Am and F#m as well. F#m is a cool key because you can play


A-2-4--
E-0-2--


kind of stuff. Play around with that b7 on the low E string.

^ i don't understand why you do so despise soloing in E, i love it. personally though my favorite keys are E minor, D minor (in drop D) C# minor, A minor and B minor. all of those have lots of open chords in them which is probably why i like them so much.

edit: BGC reminded me, F# minor too.

People just tend to have a habbit of writing in certain keys with out noticing.

I know I do. It depends on the tuning with me, or if I'm composing on piano, A minor is always easy. I also have a habbit of playing in C# minor on piano aswell.

Also, I've read stuff about notes having it's own individual properties. Don't know much about that though.

On guitar, there isn't one (besides the benefits of having notes available on open strings)
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.

A major, capo on the second, using G formation. Bluegrass FTW!

A Major/F# - it's just easy for me to write songs in A. They sound great and as simple or complicated as I like.

E major/C# minor seems to have some sort of symmetry on piano which appeals to me a lot. And Moonlight sonata is in C#

Yeah, a lot of romantic-era classical is in C# minor. Chopin, Beethoven, etc. It has a melancholy feel to it for some reason. Every time I hear a new song in C# minor, I recognize it because I relate it to Moonlight sonata. After all, it's one semitone away from the saddest key .
