Follow me on my journey as I break down the elements of amazing songs and attempt to create one of my own.

Now, after writing the lyrics, picking the key became simple. Given the context of the song, it should be in a minor key because it is heart wrenching and a bit depressing. After much consideration with my blood brother Gabe, we came down between two keys: B minor and C# minor. After I sang "Feel Nothing" (working title) in each key, we decided to go with B minor because I believed it sounded better and it will be also easier to write in.
One of the most popular songs ever written in B minor would be "Hotel California" by the Eagles.
