    Default Circle of 5ths

    I've heard of the Circle of 5ths, and I get the general idea, but I don't really understand it. Fortunately, there is more than one kind of Circle of 5ths.

    Yes, more bottles would be fine, but these bottles are all fifths - 1/5 of a gallon. So, we have a circle of 5ths.

    Thanks for the offer, becoming a guinea pig doesn't appeal to me.

    A video instruction about the Circle would be nice.

    I really tried to make the circle of fifth be the key that unlocked the mysteries of music. But so far it has only worked with the most rudimentary tunes. I do think it is a good starting point and a good foundation, but it doesn't take long to outgrow it.
    I don't want to live in a world that is linear.

    I just want everyone to understand that I am not a ukulele expert, even though it may look at times like I'm pretending to be.

    It's only part of the circle - no minors. And it'll give you a major headache. Those fifths may lay you out flat, but you'll think you're sharp!
