There's only one problem with this arrangement; it had 7 flats. I know that it's in Ab Minor, which synonymous with G# Minor, which has only 5 flats. I notice that certain notes contain double flats, which mean that you go down a half step. It's not that I'm ignorant about key signatures, I'm and expert on it, [but I happen to be to time signatures, but that's a whole 'nother story...] but what about those who don't know as much about them? Someone even said that 'Papa' was in Eb Dorian, which isn't so; it's actually in Eb Minor, b/c that key has 6 flats.

hi, i don't know much about music theory
and i sometimes wonder why people are so obsessed with figuring out the right key of a song
isn't it, that every piece of music can be written down in any key
so it's just a matter of choossing a good one - probably a key, which causes less sharps & flats
at least that's what i do :lol:
but if i'm totally wrong and there's some great magic about all this, tell me  :wink:

I am totally agree with you... Its not neccesary to figuring out the right key of a song... once you get the right notes.. its not neccesary to pick up the right key when you u know the notes

But if you're going to play in a duet with someone, you need to be in the same key. :wink:

Pretty Baby Audio (Retail/European Version): Here's the link to the version of Pretty Baby that everyone's been making such a big fuss over. This is also the version that she plays live, and it's really pretty. Maybe now someone will be able to transcribe it.

I don't see it. The first one is the album version and the others are previews.

it's not the album version; it's another version, 'cept it's a little shorter. [/i]

Is there something I'm missing here, because it sounds like the album version to me, and I even played them side-by-side to compare!

Well, I guess you're right, b/c I've went to several websites that sell CDs and so far, they have this version. The version of BNN that I have has the video [or original] version of Pretty Baby.

I once thought that this was the this tamer version of PB that didn't make the album b/c it wasn't commercial enough, but I'm starting to think that it's more recent. Vanessa [and Ron Fair] probably watered it down and wanted it up there b/c she played this version live and on her original demo. So my bad! I thought that no one had really heard of this version. I first heard it about a year ago now. So pardon my mistake. :)

The single/video/radio version came out later.  The original/album version wasn't commercial enuff so Ron Fair created an overproduced, double-tracked, fancy version for radio.  That's the version you hear in the radio.  The original version starts with the gentle high-hat.
