Hi All, It has been awhile since I have posted anything although I do lurk and read what you all have to say. I am posting today cause I found a website that I think may be of interest to some of you.
A technique I often use to improve my skills is to play along with other people's music not really trying to play what they are playing but rather using their harmonies to provide a background for my playing although sometimes I do try to copy and memorize certain riffs.
Anyway, I often have difficulty determining the key of a song that interests me. Well, I found this very useful website. Enter the name of a song, or artist, and you are presented with the key of the song, BPM, and other info. It really comes in handy for me and perhaps it will for you too.
Thanks for posting that site. I put in "Yellow on the Broom" not expecting any replies but was amazed when a whole list appeared including the one I had been trying to play for days in A major! If only I had known about that site it would have saved me hours of fustration.
Thanks again, brilliant site.
Hi erk,what I have found in relation to finding what key the tune is in,is to look at the last note the tune ends on and I would say 99% of them will be the key it is played in.IE:- If the last note ends on 4blow it is in Key "C" if it ends on Blow3 it would be "G"if it ends on No.6 blow it would be "E" Try it Eric33.
