    Leave out the F (F uses 1 flat)

    or just get the circle of fifths out.

      Fools can get donkeys at Ed's backyard.

      ^ I didn't make that up; it was a favorite of my piano instructor's back when i was in school. It's stupid enough to remember!

          this anagram sounds awfully racist.

          OH SNAP!!

              In key signatures

              look at the sharps:

              0 - C
              1 - G
              2 - D
              3 - A
              4 - E
              5 - B
              6 - F#
              7 - C#

              When the signature shows flats:

              0 - C
              1 - F
              2 - Bb
              3 - Eb
              4 - Ab
              5 - Db
              6 - Gb
              7 - Cb

                        I grew up with "Fat Cows Go Down Alleys Eating Bannanas," but this works just as well.

                            I just think about my open strings.



                            My Charvel is tuned FCGDAE

                            and my others are tuned CGDAEB (.065 is lowest, my E is now a .010 and there's a .008 above that)

                            (well, my Ernie ball is tuned CGDAEA (highest string is a 4th above E instead of a 5th.... and I'll probably tune the PRS that was as well... but you guys get the idea.)

                              Well that's not for key signatures, but makes sense like this...

                              G gets an F sharp
                              D gets an F sharp and C sharp
                              A gets an F sharp, C sharp, and G sharp

                              and so on.

                              Also, this is only for major scales.
