Thread Name: Relative Minor Key signatures?
Subject: Relative Minor Key signatures?
The other day a whistle player suggested he play something on his D whistle. The tune (Drunken Sailor) is a minor. D is two sharps. So is B minor (the relative minor of D). So I thought it would be in B minor on the guitar. It wasn't. It was in E minor. Why?
