Pleased that the service usually gets the key right, but sometimes it's egregiously wrong.
Cases in point,
- Dylan's Like a Rolling Stone, C detected as G
- Clapton's nobody knows you when you're down and out, C detected as A
- Bob Marley's no woman no cry, C detected as Db
- Jimmy Buffett's son of a sailor, C detected as G
Suggest the ability, in each user's edited version, to override the detected key.
Also/alternatively this problem could be more or less worked-around if the capo setting were 'sticky' with the user edits.
Yeah, I suppose another workaround is to simply ignore the detected key when it's wrong, which is evidently what everyone is doing now. However, its called 'key' for a reason, as its the most fundamental element of information you can possibly know and communicate to fellow musicians about a particular song.
If the system can't detect key correctly 100% of the time, then you REALLY need to provide some means of user edit/override!
