The Key

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.

This has been one of my favorite songs since I was a kid. The lyrics and key mesh together so well, and it's something I want to replicate in my song.
