I've been backing quite a lot of singer-songwriters, even gold selling
folks. "Two frets up and fingering in A" equals B in my book. And I
think B is a good key for backing on a guitar; you can use both the
the open B and E string for playing two- or three string melody licks
that is both covering the chord changes and working as comments on the
vocal phases for variation. B is guitar friendly key.
