    Or D
    That would be Dee - and he was in Twisted Sister, not Lynyrd Skynrd.

    Yep I guess G is right answer....  But starts on D..  Easy way, look up sheet music and see what key is on it...

    however it's kinda become normal to say such & such in and hove a key but really we mean starting on this chord as a quick way to tell band especially if we are changing keys.

    Same as every freeking, blasted time I go to play "Sweet Little 16" I'll say sweet little 16 in D and rest of house band at jam/open mic go... Don't ya mean A??? No I freeking don't I mean D... Try doing a r&r/blues solo on 5th fret as if your in A and tell me how ya get on.....

  • The first solo, First 4 bars
    D- D major triad 
    C - He plays a line that use C Mixolydian scale
    G - G Major Scale

    I would say the key is in G Major

    I would use G Major Penatonic/Eminor Pentatonic and put is the Blues (b5) of the Em pentatonic scale. Sounds really cool over the C chord as its not supposed be there! Nice

    The b5 of Em is Bb which is the 7th of C. That very much *is* supposed to be there and why it sounds so good over the C chord.

    After a huge amount of self assurance, then self doubt I can now definitively  state the key of Sweet Home Alabama is -1 

    G \ D 

    There, settled and everybody is happy

    Or is it D \G .............

    You missed out C Lydian as an option :)
    It's not a competition.

  • Is now a good time to point out that comparing SHA and SCOM is just daft? Never mind whatever key SHA is or isn't in, it's 100% clear that SCOM isn't in D....
