"keyboard capos" should be banned, although they allow me to play the Am or C notes in any key.Capo is one thing try working with a worship leader who can't play keys in different keys and used the transpose button. Regularly would go off into the unknown and you would have to find him by ear. Could not do this now with no amp on stage to bend down to and turn down while fiddling trying to find the key. Real trainwreck with in ears and a silent stage! This kind of stuff is why I can now pull off truly spontaneous stuff like this one the fly so--. Recorded on a little Sony personal recorder sitting in a chair in the front row at an event BTW.
Me too. My singing voice sounds the best in E major. Though my keyboard players hate that key.I think the key of E is one of my favorite keys. So many great chords and so many voicings to use. However to get there you have to get through F#m and C#m . Once you do though, it opens up so much.
The horn players love you, so you've got that going for you, which is nice! I have a Strat strung with 12's that lives in E flat (detuned a half step). I love how it sounds, but don't play it in church very often.my wheelhouse is eflat. i do detune sometimes on my own songs.
