Example1 SHARP KEYS (Cyc le of 5ths)
Here we have the seven sharp keys arranged in the cycle of 5ths with C major at the beginning. With each key signature a new sharp is added to the right of the pre-existing ones. To quickly recognise the key you are in, look at the sharp furthest to the right, then go up a semitone and you’ll arrive at the correct major key. Remember the mnemonic: Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle.
