White Houses- B or C?
« on: November 17, 2007, 09:51:00 am »
I'm confused about in which keys to play the beginning part in.
My friend taught me to play it in the B
but then i read somewhere here where they said VC usually plays it in C...
I tried it in C and it didn't sound right.
clarification?
Peace

vanessa originally wrote white houses in the key of b so whenever she plays it live she plays it in b, but on the record harmonium she plays it in c.

It's written in C on the album, but Vanessa plays it live in B.

I prefer playing it in B.

Really?
That is so interesting...
it sounded so different on the piano when I played it in C, but maybe I was too low.
That's weird to me.

her voice fits it better with the key of B the Key of C is too high for her

I think she sounds good in the album version  :)
