Subject: RE: 'Right' and 'Wrong' Keys
I should have included an example. Take the Sailor's (or College )Hornpipe, one of the most widely known fiddle tunes. This regularly appears in D, G, C and Bflat (and possinbly other keys that I havent come across as well). Fiddlers can always try starting this in Bflat if you can, at sessions. You can then enjoy the spectacle of the D/G box players frantically waggling their fingers as they search for non-existent notes.
