Re: Can anyone help me find the key, chords, or notes to this sample?
pause the song at each chord and sing the arpeggio of the chord you hear. go up and then down. while you're going downwards, stop on the note that seems to be the root, it's just supposed to come naturally, the one that seems good *is* the good one (if we're talking about a simple chord featured in the major scale which is almost always the case in reggae). So you have your root and your arp: you have your chord!
Note that in most jamaican oldies, instruments are often out of key, and sometimes the chords and melody don't match harmonically which makes the process a little difficult.
