What key is this?
« on: December 23, 2017, 06:58:49 PM »
Neophyte needs help with some music theory ...

I've been playing around with an arrangement and arrived at a combination of chords that work for my voice and ability to play/sing this song. But it appears to be a cross between keys (or I just can't figure out which key/s it's in). Any of our capable musicians able to tell me what key this might be?

A7, Bb, C, C7, D, D minor, D7, F, F7, G minor.

Maybe there's a key change?

A7, D, D minor (C7 turnaround)

Bb, C, C7, F, G minor (A7 turnaround)

TIA.

A friend of mine told me about this site a long time ago. Not as good as just answering your question, but you might be able to use.

I think you are correct about the key change. I'm no expert, but it looks to me like the first part is Key of D with an accidental D minor, and the second half (after the C7 turnaround) is Key of F with an accidental G minor. I don't have a guitar with me, so I am having a little difficulty remembering how to play some of those chord progressions. Happy strumming, and Merry Christmas.

Thanks both. I should have clarified that they weren't the progressions per se, merely alphabetical listings of the chords. The resulting chord progressions just sounded correct.
