ZOMG! RICKROLLED!

C# Major


Congratulations, you’re C# Major, and you’re actually SHARPER than a tack. C# Major is a key most musicians don’t even bother talking about, since it’s so damn strange to play. No instrument is immediately drawn to playing in C# Major, and the small amount of songs that do manage to get the distinction of being written in that key normally just get called Db Major instead because it’s “easier to think about.” So what is there going for C# Major? It’s the only key where every single note is sharp rather than having any flats, double sharps, etc. It is an easy fix to play when you’re trying to transpose out of something boring like C Major, as well. This key is even almost an inside joke to musicians, making it the key of a song just to screw with their band mates. Good fun for all.


Well, then! You must be one oddball individual to get this key. You’re the type of person who would go out naked and dance through the sprinklers… in the middle of February. And there’s nothing wrong with that, individuality is a trait most people sorely lack. Just… tone it down a bit in front of the more normal of us, please?


SONG EXAMPLE: Never Gonna Give You Up – Rick Astley (No, seriously!)


INTERESTING TIDBITS:


* Harp players especially hate this key because the pedals on a harp all must be put into the bottom position, causing almost no resonance through the strings.


* Some (very few, though) piano teachers actually say that C# Major is easier to play than C Major and teach it at the start of curriculum. Take THAT, C Major!
