Thank you...I'm working at it fezz, I'm working at it.
E flat for these human ears. The strat just seems to hit its sweet spot in that key.
I don't think it's the key so much, it might be how you present and match the song to the mood of the audience.
The Grateful Dead were masters of the mood ring. It really didn't matter what song or key at a Dead show, we all knew it was coming, one way or another.
I guess it is more of a cultural thing. The mind wants what the mind gets. If the most popular songs lean towards the same set of chords and progressions, the listener gets comfortable with a smaller range musical parameters that feels pleasing to the ear.
Then we got instrumentation range where most instruments have there sweetspot within a set of limitations. Pitch range, dynamic range within certain keys and so on.
C and G are the easiest keys to write in. C has no incidentals and G only has a single sharp (F#). Neither’s pentatonic scale, nor their relative minor pentatonics (A- and E-) contain any accidentals.
Scales with many accidentals, are simply more difficult to read and play. That’s probably why you don’t see many pieces in there in keys like D flat or B.
Every major and minor scale in western music sounds equally good, in my opinion, but some are just more difficult to read, write and play.
Sorry, I can't answer this without venturing away from equal temperament.
Question @Fezz I understand how 1 , 3, 5 in single notes in chords sound good together, when people refer to chord progression 1, 4, 5 what are they referring to ? are these 2 totally different things ? Or similar, already lost my train of thought. Lol
Enlightened me , without a complex answer
Derailing my own thread. Lol
I'm gonna say G
I would not know. I do not have human ears.
Unfortunate. I have a whole bag of human ears. They were given to me by my friends ... and some Romans ... and, of course, some countrymen.
They're not for keepsies, though. I have to give 'em back.

I have no idea what key the majority of rock songs are written in, but A major to me just screams rock and roll.

I. I appreciate anyone that knows anything about other tuning systems.
2. I appreciate even more keeping them out of guitar discussions, since the guitar is a 12 tone ET instrument and works very well as such.
