josepp Easy way to draw a circle of 5ths (59* d) RE: Easy way to draw a circle of 5ths 01 May 11

Sorry, I pressed the submit button by mistake.

Let's try it again:

Pick another scale--say F:

F A C E G Bb D F'

And there it is again: FACE EGBDF

It will always work out that way. It will always show the layout on staff paper and form a 7-pointed star. Doesn't matter if you use the equivalent minors and it doesn't matter if you use enharmonic equivalents. It always produces the same pattern.

There is all kinds of cool info locked up inside the Circle of 5ths if you know how to find it.
