I had a question in mind, so I thought would best to use as an introductory forum post. I've written this 4-bar piece, but I don't know if it's in E major or minor. I don't usually 'conform' to scales when I write my riffs and pieces, so it's not whole-half-half-whole-whole-whole-half or whole-half-whole-whole-half-whole-whole with the way I work. With that in mind, here's my question: Is there a cheat to figure out if my piece is in major or minor, and what notes would I have to lower/raise a semitone to change? Here's my 4-bar piece as example (the * notes mean they're in the next octave): E*-D*-Db*-B-Ab-B-D*-A-C*-E*-E*-E*-D*-Db*-B. Transposing is easy, it's major/minor figuring and differentiation that's tricky!
