Bear with me here... I’m learning theory stuff just now and working on key and modes etc. and I’m finding it really interesting, but some seemingly simple stuff still stumps me.
My 8 year old son is learning to play and his homework at the moment is a chord sequence of Am, C, G, D. So I used this as a wee test for myself and worked this out as being in the key of G. But... he’s playing those shapes with a capo on the third fret, so it’s not actually in G, is it? What key is this in and how do I work it out? Hope that makes sense.
I tried to figure this out but can’t quite get it and I’m interested in how to work it out as much as what the answer is.
Thanks in advance.
