The Interactive Circle of Fifths

Postby Hugh-AR » 30 Sep 2018 14:50

The Interactive Circle of Fifths ("the Circle" for short) is a tool designed to help musicians to:

  • figure out the key of a piece of music
  • easily transpose music to a different key
  • compose new music
  • understand key signatures, scales, and modes

The LINK below will take you to the 'chart' showing you the 'Circle of Fifths'. When you get there, in the first instance check that the selection is set to Tonic C, and Mode Major / Ionian.

To read the topic about this, click on User's Guide in the Chart. This will automatically open up in a New Tab so you can toggle between the topic and the chart as you are reading the article.
