So on Monday I'm getting together for the first time ever to play with a group. They play for fun, so it's not high pressure, but I'm still nervous. I'm looking through the set list and everything's pretty easy - Moondance, Mystery Train, and the like - but here's there's one song I'm confused about: Michael Buble's 'Sway': I'm being told the recording is in F#, but I find that - by ear - I want to play the first verse as A - E - A - E - D - E - A - E - D - E - D - E - D - E - A (from the start of the song to the first time the music stops). My question: Is my ear just bad and I'm playing the wrong notes? Or is my information bad and the recording is actually in A? Or is it really in F# and I just don't understand what's going on? Any help is appreciated - I'm new at working things out by ear.
