Whats that smell?
This may sound like a stupid question but how do you determine what key a song is in?
lot's of lynyrd skynyrd tunes and gun's and roses version of "knocking on heaven's door" starts on the "g" chord...yet the solo is in "e" at the 12th fret position instead of at the 15th fret where it "should" be...the use of these "relative" scales are very prevalent in country songs...[/QUOTE said:That would be the major pentatonic for (E for the key of G for example) the key. You're right in that you get a country sound, I've always thought of it as a happier sound as opposed to the minor pentatonic. And it sounds really cool to mix minor and major ala Clapton and Vaughn, just to name a couple. You can always find the major pentatonic down a minor third from the song's key
