What key is this in?

    Hello! I am curious as to what key Pokey Lafarge plays this song in. I am a beginner but I have learned a few blues shuffles in a few different keys and would really like to play this song. Thanks!

    looks like C.

    At :25 He starts off in C shape 523x

    Also the guitar player shows C at 2:44 or so.

    I really like this guys videos. (Not sure if I could just listen to his CD) He's got that funky vintage style down pat

    Thanks, Mark! Pokey is one of my favorite musicians, and I just saw him live earlier this month. What a show! I do wish he played more of the style that he does in this video though.
    So, I see the C that he starts the progression in, but what kind of F and G chords is he playing?

    To me it seems like a pretty straight up progression.
    C - C7 - F - C - G - C (Maybe G7 at times not sure)
    but in the intro and other break sections it sounds like maybe an Fm? after the F:
    C - C7 - F - Fm - C - G - C
    Just a guess tho - still a novice myself

    This is great stuff! I'll be learning some of this style for sure.

    Pokey Lafarge is certainly my favorite too. As I understand it most (or all?) of his songs are originals. But whatever he is a great musician, song writer and performer. I have not had the opportunity to see him in person, unfortunately.
