Yes most people are lazy in their definitions of music. A is not Ami but millions of guys play the Ami pentatonic scale and say its in the key of "A." Rock band members and self taught rock guitarists mostly all do this.
Guilty, as charged,,,but that's because I just didn't know any better, or really didn't even care at the time. I could kick myself now, but that was Life "Pre-Pebber." So the sooner you "catch on" to things like knowing the PROPER KEY
of a song, the better off you'll be!
By the way, Hannah Mackrell, WELCOME to the Forum!!! We are more than happy to have you and look forward to your valuable questions and input, as well. Remember, the only "silly," or "dumb" question is the one which is not asked! More often than not, somebody else has that exact same question but is afraid to post it, for fear of ridicule.
As administrator, I ASSURE
you that any ridiculing will not be tolerated. I want you to feel "at home" and very comfortable. We have a PHENOMENAL cast of characters participating at the moment, and we are all here to encourage and support
THANK YOU for the great question!! You are in the right place, and we'll see you soon, I hope!!!
