#beginquote# try this link: http://www.teoria.com/reference/reading/20.htm It has a pretty clear explanation of Key Signatures. In music there is something called "tonality". It is what makes a song sound like it is centered around one note or another. Key signatures are used to avoid having to write lots of sharps and flats all of the time. Some more modern music is atonal. This means it doesn't sound like it is in any key. Other music may be bitonal. This means it uses two keys simultaneously. As you can tell by the previous replies to your question, it is a concept not easily explained and you can really go into depth if you want. There are many sites and books which walk you through it at your own pace. GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
