I'd advise you to find that out yourself.

It will help your ear out so much.

Here's a useful tip - you can find only the roots first knowing that you use I IV V progression. Firts find the roots and you will be sure then in what key are you then.

I always find the key to a backing just playing a scale over it until it sounds good. Then I check the root note of the first cage of the scale, and that's the key. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong but so far it always works!).

If it sounds sad, I guess I'm on minor, so I check the root of 1st cage of the minor scale.
If it sounds happy, I guess it's ionian, and I check the root of 1st cage of the major scale.

And I do the same with pentatonic scales.

I bet there are many other ways to figure the key of a song, but trying by ear is the easiest for me.


Edit: Thanks for that link with BTs, Juan!!
