Musicians, music lovers, and everyone else who knows what a key is - what’s your favorite? It could be your favorite key to hear songs in, to write in, or whatever. Feel free to add anything, from your least favorite key, to comments on keys or music in general, jokes or references to movies or TV shows, snide comments directed at me or my mother, comments about how I’m a snob by addressing this topic only to people who know what musical keys are (and I’m actually not, but I suppose they’re more inclined to give a meaningful answer), or what have you. Hell, if you like, you could just make a good laugh. I love to laugh, even at my expense, so if you make my day, I’ll love you forever.
Personally, whenever I’m making up songs (I’m not so audacious as to claim I “write music” when I can’t even read it), I often find myself in the key of E minor. The last band I played with decided we should tune our guitars to Standard Eb, so I found myself playing in (what is technically) Eb minor very often. Over the course of almost a year, we wrote 7 original songs. 2 of them were in Eb minor, another was (I think) in Ab minor but sounded like Eb minor because it hinged around chugging on an E5 chord (which is a standard operating procedure for a metal band), and a couple of the others drifted in and out of Eb minor occasionally.
Some people might argue that I have little variation when it comes to musical keys, but Metallica’s made a whole career out of primarily songs in E minor, so there!
