Circle of Fifths PDF

In music theory, the Circle of Fifths is a way of organizing the 12 chromatic tones as a sequence of perfect fifths. If C is chosen as the starting point, the sequence is C, G, D, A, E, B (= C ♭), F♯ (= G ♭), C♯ (= D ♭), A ♭, E ♭, B ♭, F. Continuing the pattern from F returns the sequence to its starting point of C. This order places the most closely related key signatures next to each other. It is usually illustrated in the shape of a circle.
