Example2 FLAT KEYS (Cyc le of 4ths)
Here we have the seven flat keys arranged in the cycle of 4ths with C major at the beginning. With each key signature a new flat is added to the right of the pre- existing ones. To quickly recognise the major key you are in, look at the flat second from the right this is the name of the key. This shortcut doesn’t work with the key of F since there is only one flat. Remember: Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles’ Father.
