Eb/E flat, I think.
My sis sings it in our duo.
According to the following website, it's E minor, capo on 8th fret.
I so wanted to say 'all of them...' then decided not to, but went and did it anyway.
Slow day here today, obviously.
Note that when you have a capo at the 8th fret and you're playing an E minor chord shape, you're really playing a C minor chord. And C minor is the relative minor of Eb Major. For what it's worth, I would say this song is in Eb.
That's what I'm thinking, too. It resolves well to Eb, and that's also the maj pent scale that sounds right on top of it.
On a related note, this song is a prime example of why all those chord/tab sites out there are borderline useless. I have no idea where they're getting that "capo @ 8th fret" from.
I think this guy has it right...capo @ 3rd fret, by the way.
Imho, anyone using a capo as in the video above should be naming the actual chord value...not the form. And...what he is calling Bm is actually the 5 chord...Bb in this song, which is written with three flats....Eb or Cm. I say it is in Eb because of the chords that are used and when they are used.
