What key is this song in?

Hey guys,

I’ve been trying to figure out what key the harmonica in this song is, but can’t for the life of me figure it out! It’s “By Your Side” by Beachwood Sparks, but here’s the link to the song anyway:

Beachwood Sparks - By Your Side

Any help would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:

Originally done by Sade, it should be in C Major.
If that’s the case the Cross Harp would be in F.



Hey Paul,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunatley C Major doesn’t seem to match with this version as I’ve already tried it. Hmm, still a little stuck on this one. ???

Let’s not give up yet.
I’ve found Guitar chord tabs for the Beachwood Sparks version here…

If you can work with those they may help to give you a clue.
If I was to hazard another guess ??? maybe try Bb.


Sorry for the long response.

Was thinking either Bb or one of the D’s myself too. Hard to pin it down though.
