Hi all, after a bit of help please. I been trying to learn a bit of theory lately, I'm fairly new to all this.
The subject of the confusion is 'Clash City Rockers' by The Clash
The main chord progression is E D A G B A B E (with a C# thrown into the chorus)
Now the tonal centre seems to be E and info I can find online back this up as being in the key of E.
There is no D or G in the key of E, there is however, D# and G#
I have read that notes can be borrowed from 'related' keys, which I believe to be the IV and V note keys (A and
Key of A can account for the D but I still can't work out the G.
Relative Minor key doesn't help either!
I may be overthinking this and should just accept that it sounds great! Is also possible I've gone note blind and the G is there somewhere and I'm just not seeing it :-)
Apologies if this is a stupid question.
