Lynne,
I'm curious to know the following:
Are all the rock songs written in given scales, and once I master the scales i can find any song keys without going back to a sheet music? thanx

Hi, Badis--

The "Key Signature" of a song is determined by how many sharps or flats are in the scale.

You can learn more about key signatures at:
