Ok. I never really understood this until a few months ago, but I still have a little bit of trouble every now and then. My band is covering a Rolling Stones called Far Away Eyes. Now keep in mind we're just a bunch of teenagers who don't know what the hell we're doing half the time. The chords we use are A Sharp, C and F. So is it in the key of A Sharp? This is probably a dumb question but I need to know. Thanks.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Thanks guys. I just tried a few solos in F and they sounded great over the song. I really appreciate it.

Yeah key of F.

An easy way to tell what key a song is in is to see what chord sounds best to finish on. So I'm guessing you play an F at the end yeah? Same rule applies for 99% of songs.

Thanks for the tip man. I'll definitely use that one in the future.

Yes, it is in the key of F Major. Also, just to let you know, the correct name for the chord in this context is Bb and not A#
