    Do these 2 songs sound similar?

    So this is a weird incident that has happened that I need to talk about.

    I've been into Jimi Hendrix for about 4 years or so, and I have to say "voodoo child" is my favorite. Meanwhile about 2 weeks ago I heard another song on the radio. Its called "give me one reason" by Tracy Chapman.
    Now both songs are pretty different when it comes to genre, but upon hearing the notes, I immediately pointed out that its the same notes to voodoo child.

    What are your guys' opinion?






    Also just want to point out the bass in "reason" is similar to the guitar rift in "voodoo child" as well

    You're hearing pentatonic scale.

    Both songs use the same notes but they are also very common in a lot of music, so it's not really a coincidence.

    If you get a piano and randomly press only the black keys (D# pentatonic scale) you can create similar melodies.
