Icon12 What is your favoite key/scale for a song?

What is your favorite key that you always like to put your songs in when you produce music? (ex: C major, D major, C minor)

For me, my favorite key is G minor which is a relevant key to B-flat major. I ALWAYS use it.

I am really into G minor lately. I tend to always quickly compose in A minor and then transcribe into another key and morph it from there.

G minor here too. 49Hz subs for kicks and bass sound delicious. B)

Re: What is your favoite key/scale for a song?

I tend to start in E minor, although I always end up using F instead of F# so I guess I'm in A minor.

Some like music theory; others like music practice.

Re: What is your favoite key/scale for a song?

I don't have a favorite scale and key. If a song is good, it's good. It doesn't matter if it's in G major or Db minor.

Re: What is your favoite key/scale for a song?

^^^Eb Major is a fantastic rich key. My favorite piece to play- Nocturne in E flat Major by Chopin.

I just spent some time playing around on the piano using the chord progression of Eb Major, A flat Major, G minor and C minor. I am definitely going to do something with what I came up with.

F in all its carnations is a bass monster...I pretty much exclusively write dubstep in f and f minor

Yeah I often end up in F or G because of optimal sub bass. Not sure that counts as favorite tho..
