Ya know, outside poop, i like to write music. Thats like my other thing. Nothing serious, just a hobby.

and it seems like half the time the songs or musical riffs i come up with almost always end up sounding best to me

in one certain key or another but nothing else.

And lately its been Bb Minor or sometimes F Minor. no matter how many times i pick up my guitar or sing some lyrics in my head

they almost always end up in one of those 2 keys. They may end up in different ones later but thats the ones they end up starting at.

What about you guys? got a musical key that seems to always sound appealing to your ears? or maybe a certain chord?

E major is my favorite to work in, when I do write my own tunes.

F#, G or Am. Or maybe Dm.

Man, there are too many keys I like. I hate Eb though.

I could imagine especially for a guitar/bass player E or Eb could get obnoxious after a while especially since for a lot of people

thats the string you're plucking while you're changing amp settings or the like. Because then that same sound of that big fat E string

going BLUNG BLUNG BLUNG gets burned into your head.

I've actually found it hard to get into Dm myself or for the guitar guys "drop d tuning" type stuff. i guess that sound was always too edgy for me.

though it is helpful making some E riffs when you can grab that extra low D note. Now for more mellow non-rock sounds Dm is beautiful.

As Nigel Tufnel said "the saddest chord there is" and as an expressive main key for a song like say "calling in the air tonight" it makes quite an impact

I think the reason i like Bb a whole lot is because it seems to have this jumpy happy vibrance even if its in a minor scale and i always

find it hard NOT to get caught up in going into a full on Barre Chord Double Stop Disco/Funk sextravagansa playing in that key. I've mastered

many a barre chord doing that.

E Major. My favorite chord is E 6/9, usually with the E in bass and the rest in treble.

C is pretty much my main thing, though I always go into D#.

G, most likely because it's the only key I can sing in two octaves.

I like the F# minor chord alot. It's one of my favorite chords. But I only have a basic grasp of theory, and now I'm beginning to discover 9 chords and clusters and other nice stuff like that, so I expect that will change the way I think.

I have tried to write pieces before. The last one I did was a pentatonic composition in F#m, so it may very well be my favorite key.

I like them all, though. C is great for its simplicity, Em is nice...

And I also love all the melodic minor tunes. I love the exotic sound from the raised subtonic.

Honestly? C#m is pretty cool, but it's really overused. I really like, as far as chords go, Ab6/Bb, though.

I gravitate toward most minor keys, though anything in any form of B has my heart.

I'm still grasping the many variety of scales out there, but the one I play the most on my Bass is E Harmonic Major.

D Dorian as of this writing, because it sounds nice for me without having to press any flats (unless I'm going into piano solo overdrive)

G-flat, B, and D. All major.

To be honest, I don't think of keys when I write stuff. I just write stuff that sounds good.
