Circle of Fifths

Found this when I was looking for Pentatonic scales. Pretty good explanation of what you can do with the circle of fifths. I especially like Fact #5. It explains why I see F show up in G major songs so often.

I enjoyed this video. I can apply more music theory / chord scales to banjo than guitar. This reinforces the NNS and the Alan Mundy fret board series. The guy in the video has the circle of fifths tattooed on his arm. Now that is an idea…
