Hello Guys,

Basically I want to play Pirates of the Caribbean Theme song "The Curse Of The Black Pearl" My first chord I start with is Am then F then G. However I am not sure what key I am playing in. Can someone be so kind to tell me the key and also if you're really nice work the rest of the chords out? When I play the melody I start with E, G and A

It is a great song and when I master it I am hoping to record it, and maybe post on here so you can all tell me what you think.

Thanks :))

Try to see what's the last chord or note, most often it's in that key (like 99% of the time).

In de book i have of PoTC (the original for piano from the movie) it's in d minor.
Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Well, you're playing it in A minor but it's supposed to be in D minor.
