One of our visitors asked the following
question and I am pleased to say someone provided the answer -
"Where can I find a wheel I can turn to
find the different keys, how many and what are the sharps or flats in each key, different
chords and their make up etc. What are the sharps and the flats in order of the keys. 1
flat, 2 flats, etc.,"
Apparently this is called a "Chord Dial" and these
can be found on www.musicdials.com.
Janet Drone for answering this one - she was the only person who responded
USEFUL TIP (sent in by
Gerry Jones - Musician)
One of the most useful musical
mnemonic I have ever come across;
or even in reverse.
This can give you all sorts of
information, such as -
the Sharps of a key, in
their right order.
Or the flats, in reverse
the dominant and subdominant
of every key.
the basic pattern for the
left-hand buttons of a piano accordion.
