Piano Fact

Week I: Key of the Song
Want a quick and easy way to know what key a song is in? Don’t bother trying to figure out the key signature. Instead, look at the last measure of the song. What ever a song’s final chord is also the name of the key. Always.

Also: The final note of a song’s melody will usually be the key as well. But not always.

And: The FIRST chord of a song is usually the name of the key too. But, again, not always.

For further information see Popular Chord Style Piano.
