The scale is E major/E Ionian. AKA B mixolydian or C# Dorian.
Scarlet is in the key of E
This is one of those songs that I have endless debates on what key it is in. I, too, believe it is in E but the very accomplished keyboard player in my band believes it is in B. Sweet Home Alabama is another of those songs. I believe SHA is in D with the progression going 1-7-4, not 5-4-1 if the song was in G (as some believe it to be).
I would be curious to understand your musical reasoning for determining the E key of Scarlet. I totally agree with you but would like more knowledge on how I can explain my position.
