Hi everyone !

I'm currently working on a cover of Windmill Hills (from DKC Tropical Freeze) and it's the first time that I work without any tabs/sheet music/MIDI files. My knowledge in music theory are very low and I absolutely don't have perfect pitch :-( Found the melody was not a problem, but I'm not sure about the key and the chord progession. 

For now, I assume that the song is in E Major with an E-B-A progression. Is it correct ?

I got these chords in E major:

  • E G# B
  • F# B D#, but F# A D could be a cool variation
  • C# E A

F# A D is technically in D major, but it seems to fit to me.

Remember that the progression does change at 1:06. I hear:

  • A D F#
  • A C# E
  • F# A D

And it changes again at 1:37. I hear:

  • B E G#
  • B D# F#
  • B E G#
  • A C# E
  • B D# F#
