This question already has an answer here:

I'm a beginner guitar player, and I was working a little bit on my theory as well as learning songs I like with the song Feel Good Inc., by Gorillaz. So, I was looking at the chords and I was trying to guess the key, and I said D-sharp minor.

I looked up the key to see if I was right, and Google said E-flat minor.

Now, I know that they're technically the same thing, but I was wondering if there's any inherent use or meaningful difference in making in saying the song is in E-flat minor vs D-sharp minor.

Maybe for other instruments in the song that aren't guitar? I wouldn't know since that's all I play.

Thanks, in advance!

  • While the duplicate questions is about the parallel minor keys, the question and answers all are about the general concept of enharmonic keys. – Dom Feb 17 at 23:08
  • @Dom - yes, the question itself is asking something different from the other question, but the answers explain both queries. – Tim Feb 18 at 7:01
