GUEST,Rumncoke How much difference does the Key make? (106* d) RE: How much difference does the Key make? 12 Mar 08


I have tried to understand the theory of music and how to read dots, but I can't quite get it. I know that there are notes of a certain pitch and length and yet it never really translates into a tune.

I know that when I sing 'Sea Fever' I transpose it into a minor key, because I used to have a yacht - and now I don't, even though I live beside the sea.

The key, or perhaps it is the mode, makes all the difference. I don't know how or why, there is simply a right sound for the singer and song together.
