Something has confused me for a while with sheet music. This doesn't happen that much, but it does happen.
Sometimes, a piece will be in a certain key, but the actual notes in the music are missing one of the flat or sharp notes in the key signature.
If the key signature is A major with F#/C#/G#, then I'm watching out for those special notes, and expect to see them. Let's say this tune has F#s and C#s, but no Gs anywhere to sharpen.
In this case, why didn't the composer label it as Key of D major instead, since that would have worked too, and been less confusing?
The vast majority of song the verses and chorus end on the key signature note, as A major it would end on A note where if written in D major it would end on the D so to accomplish that you would start on a different note on a different string to finish on the key signature note.
I believe that's how to explain it someone else maybe better at explaining it.
Master the Frog and you have mastered the bow.
Yup - it's very common for songs/tunes to resolve to the tonic - it gives a sense of "completion and resolution" - although this is not always necessary.
Also, if scored in G, the tune could be in aeolian mode (minor) - which would really be E minor, with the tune resolving to its tonic - E
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
