-Three ideas:+A few ideas:
 * Use music theory to minimize accidentals (as proposed [https://​www.ultimate-guitar.com/​lessons/​for_beginners/​how_to_know_which_key_a_song_is_in.html here]) * Use music theory to minimize accidentals (as proposed [https://​www.ultimate-guitar.com/​lessons/​for_beginners/​how_to_know_which_key_a_song_is_in.html here])
-** That's what [[http://​musictheorysite.com/​namethatkey this]] site does.+** This seems to work about 90% of the time 
 +** That's what [http://​musictheorysite.com/​namethatkey this] site does and [https://​www.youtube.com/​watch?​v=G6bD1qJxRow this guy] explains 
 +* Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals 
 +* Use music theory to minimize accidentals 
 +* Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals weighted by their prominence in the key (e.g., I weighted highest, IV and V weighted next-highest) 
 +** Learn weights from data 
 +* Use music theory to minimize accidentals weighted by their prominence in the key (e.g., bVII weighted lowest, bVI weighted higher) 
 +** Learn weights from data
 * Use music theory to minimize accidentals to get candidates and then use music theory to choose intelligently from candidates * Use music theory to minimize accidentals to get candidates and then use music theory to choose intelligently from candidates
-* Use neural network.+* Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals to get candidates and then use music theory to choose intelligently from candidates 
 +* Use neural network 
 +* Use HMM 
 + 
 +Interesting ear training and other techniques and sites: 
 + 
 +*[http://​www.hearandplay.com/​main/​the-minor-chord-test-to-finding-the-key-of-any-song Minor chord test] 
 +*[http://​ask.metafilter.com/​101348/​determine-key-from-chords Forum] about this exact question 
 +*[https://​www.guitarlessonworld.com/​lessons/​determining-the-key/​ Lesson on key from chord progressions] which uses the music theory to minimize accidentals 
 +* [http://​www.wikihow.com/​Work-Out-Which-Key-You'​re-In Wikihow] focuses on key signature, humming, and just practicing] 
 + 
 +It's crazy how everyone essentially agrees there is a way to do it, but it always comes down to how it "​feels";​ is it "​finished"?​ Where it "​lands"​. And other ambiguous phrases
