Learning The Circle of 5ths

  • Purchase 12 5ths of whiskey
  • Drink 12 5ths
  • If still able, arrange bottle in a circle

Ok, that was a pretty lame joke.

Here are the notes starting from C moving in the direction of 5ths.

  • C
  • G (F#)
  • D (F# and C#)
  • A (F#, C#, and G#)
  • E (F#, C#, G#, and D#)
  • B (F#, C#, G#, D#, and A#)
  • F#/Gb (F#, C#, G#, D#, A#, and E#) (Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, and Cb)
  • Db (Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, and Gb)
  • Ab (Bb, Eb, Ab, and Db)
  • Eb (Bb, Eb, and Ab)
  • Bb (Bb and Eb)
  • F (Bb)
