I've forgotten how to figure out what key a song is in. i.e. when a group of musicians or wanna-be musicians are jamming and they say a song is in the key of f or g or whatever, where can I get the info to figure that out. I do know the key of C has no sharps or flats, but I don't know how to learn to figure out the # of flats and sharps in other keys.

Each note (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,) TO INCLUDE THE SHARPS AND FLATS. Each note has its own scale. there should be 12 scales? You separate the scales by understanding steps and half steps or tones and semi-tones. So to answer your question its not that simple. You have to study a lot, practice the scales-a lot and take some lessons. I hope that helps
