About The Key Of D Locrian

Sad But True is written in the key of D Locrian. According to the Theorytab database, it is the 3rd most popular key among Locrian keys and the 75th most popular among all keys. The D Locrian scale is similar to the D Minor scale except that both the 2nd and the 5th notes (E♭ and A♭) are a half step lower. This means that the characteristic "home base" chord of D Locrian has a dissonant diminished quality (d˚), which makes it a very uncommon choice for songs. See the D Locrian Cheat Sheet for popular chords, chord progressions, downloadable midi files and more!
