I am a big fan of solfege, you know, "do, re, mi." ("do" is pronounced like "dough", not "doo") There is a lot of (ego-based) disagreement about whether to use the fixed-do or the movable-do system.

look for the key of the song if it is in C major then the cdefgabc are in it that's ignoring if the song has a blues note or any other form of playing outside the scale. Strictly major scale! not harmonic minor or anything else. edit: or the A minor scale
