Things to remember

Things to remember

  • The sharp keys will be plain notes most of the time i.e. A not A# or B not B#. The key of F# and the key of C# are the only exceptions we will deal with.

  • The flat keys will be something flat other than the key of F. So it will be Eb or Ab.

  • The key of C has NO sharps or flats in the key signature.
