So do you think your favorite key (signature) depicts your personality? Happy people like major keys and grumpy people like minor keys? Can it be that
I am usually an upbeat person, so choosing a major key as my favorite seems to fit my personality. Right? Again, that was my first response to the question. However, admitting that I also am a very passionate person, and seeing some others here say they favor minor keys, I re-thought my answer. (I know, too much thinking today) One of my favorite pieces is Chopin’s 1st Ballade – g-minor, and my second favorite nocturne which I’m practicing now is in c# minor, so yes, I do love to play plenty of sad, dark, minor pieces that rip out your heart. In reality, it is the drama I like best - and you can’t have drama without some darkness. So to answer my own question: Or course it is not that simple. Still, that nocturne ends in a c# major
chord, which sounds so nice - it hurts, so I will stay with major keys being my favorite; especially d-flat major, which sounds the same as c# major, right? What a coincidence.
