One of the problems that most guitar students have is how to find the key of a song.

Knowing what is the key of a song can help you in learning and remembering the song, in knowing what scales you can use if you want to play a lead on it or are rearranging the song (like when you play a cover), and in doing many other things.

Knowing how to find the key of a song is one of these 'basic' skills that every musician - pro or amateur - should know how to do and how to do it fast.

This is not an optional skill.

This is something that you will do ALL THE TIME in any band (or that someone else will do for you if you are not able... but do you really want to wait on your bandmates for something you can learn in 10 minutes?)

So in this video, we learn together how to find the key of a song from its chords. And I recommend this video even if you know your major and minor keys already, as not all songs are simply in major or minor :)

If what I talk about in this video sounds hard or mysterious to you, no problem. Have a look at this other video that will introduce you to the other concepts you need to understand. In just a few minutes you'll be up and running, and these concepts are used everywhere in music so you can get a lot of mileage from what you learn here:

If you like what you are learning here and you want to get beyond the basic major and minor scales (and even if you don't know these scales yet and you want to learn them) then have a look at the Master of the Modes guitar scales course that is a complete course on scales and modes on guitar that will take you from zero to hero.
