We can turn every fourth note in the key to a flat and then change those notes to flats in all the keys below, right?C D E F G A B CF G A Bb C D E FBb C D Eb F G A BbEb F G Ab Bb C D EbAb Bb C Db Eb F G AbDb Eb F Gb Ab Bb C DbGb Ab Bb Cb Db Eb F GbLike that? So we can use circle of fifths to figure out sharps and circle of fourths to figure out flats! -------------------- Download my free guitar and Floyd Rose setup guide: http://www.samsguitars.tk/

Then after doing this for a bit you will just memorize how many flats are in each key, or how many sharps, and you will be able to recall them on the spot without the grid. But in the meantime, the grid is a great way to learn the order of sharps and flats as well as work out key signatures. -------------------- Ask me anything on the theory board.

When you play any of those chords in any specific order (chord progression), you'll be surely playing within the same key. This means that if you build a chord progression using only chords found within a certain key, that those chords should work together and sound nice in a song. Of course, as mentioned in this lesson/topic we can also see a key as a main note and a group of other notes (none, sharp or flat) that form each key.If you are wondering how to find chords in C major key for example, I've made this bass lesson (it applies to guitar too, read the text below video part 1), check it out here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/misc-less...ng-major-scale/Please let me know if you have follow up questions? -------------------- For GMC support please email support (at) guitarmasterclass.netCheck out my lessons and my instructor board.Check out my beginner guitar lessons course! ; Take a bass course now!My solo and band songs : Keep Going On, Night Vibe, Kad Te Vidim, Susret, Plava Silueta
