The CO 5ths has been as deep as I've gone into understanding "theory." It has never let me down, especially when transposing to my voice's key(s).


To divide it up a bit, mark about 5:50 and 11:20 as separate sections.

<edit> Perhaps this video has been discussed sometime in the past, but here it is again.

I love the example at the end of how you lose the resolution getting back to your original key if you try to go all the way around the circle —I always wondered what that would sound like!!

Also, a very well-done video - I like that it includes examples of songs that go both directions around the circle, and gives the visual of where on the circle something is while giving the sound at the same time.
