    on an Island w/3-minor keys

    Your being sent to an Island to join a jazz and blues combo. The combo plays everything in 3-minor keys, but won't disclose the names of those keys. You don't have time to become proficiant in all minor keys. What 3-minor keys will you be sure to be proficiant in? "All keys" is a desirable answer, but unacceptable as it applies to this fantasy.

    Do we really need more threads about minor keys?

    It depends on the latitude and longitude--where exactly is this island?

    S. Coomer thanks. Brekelefuw, you can change the question to majors if it will make you more cooperative. Vulgano Brother, what ever island will extract the appropriate answer.

    OK. Aeolian, Harmonic, and Melodic...in all 12 keys.

    Bb, F, and of course D minor- the saddest of all keys...

    3 keys, that sounds more like HELL than an island!

    Nope, a trumpet player that is satisfied with 3 keys, is not a trumpet player, he is LAZY.
