Oddly enough, I rarely play in this key

Your result for What's your key signature?...

E Major


Congratulations, you’re E Major, now start pumping out those root notes on the bass. Yes, the quintessential key of rock suits anything that requires loud and low on the bass, high and screechy on guitar, and open fifths on electric keyboard. With 4 sharps it’s not the best key for winds or piano, but with the tuning on guitars, it’s like the two were made for each other. That’s probably why metal, punk and all sorts of hard rock throw down to this key. E is for energy after all, it seems.


So are you, of course. Energy and noise are what you’re all about! Go for the gusto all you want, friend. Overdoing your bubbling over amount of adrenaline can be bad. And don’t run over old people. That’s bad.


SONG EXAMPLE: Pretty much anything in the genres I listed up there.


INTERESTING TIDBIT:


* As if to drive the point home that this is a key to be played on loud amped up instruments, E is incredibly hard to play on the ukulele.
