I am wondering how to approach doing any solo type riffs/breaks in the key of E minor. That said, my theory is weak, so maybe you guys can help me out a bit. From what I've read-the key of e minor has only one sharp: F# The key of E has 4 sharps: C#, D#, G# & F# I found a chart online that shows the Major keys and their corresponding relative minor keys. The major key for E minor is G major. Does this mean that I can focus on the key of G for my riffs? What is the actual difference between G major, and E minor, if all of the notes are the same? Or is there still a different note in there? I really appreciate your help!
