What is the key of g demolished?
The "Key of G-Demolished" is a simple play on words, it comes from the description of a musical scale, in this case, "G-Diminished." The earliest reference we could find credits it to Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top fame. When discussing playing as the backing band for the likes of Bo Diddly and Chuck Berry, Billy said that they had to learn to play "off the cuff" because there was no set list and the main act would just call out a song to which Billy would say "What key?" and get the reply "Uh, G-Demolished."
