A new direction

This week we took a new course away from solos and towards composition. We started by picking a song (Jason Mraz’s “You and I Both), which Dan and I respectively listened to over Youtube before beginning our analysis.

The advice given to me on locating which key a song is set in was to play all notes on any particular string (we used the 6th, the one closest to your head and shoulders). Eventually, you will hit a note that fits perfectly with the song, one that does not sound like it is out of place or unresolved. When you find this note, it will be the key of which the song is in.
