I really enjoyed the intermediate lesson on relations between major and minor scales. I get it! I’m now able to play all the scales ( major and minor) without looking at music just by thinking through the order and using the techniques Estela teaches. A trick I learned to memorize the order is:

Father Charles Got Down And Ended Battle

FCGDAEB - the order of sharps!

then for flats: if you get a bead stuck in your throat then go cough it out or …

BEAD? GO Cough(F)!

BEADGCF - the order of flats!

I also like using the Chord Wheel app on my iPhone to get a quick visual and audio of the relation of keys to their relative chords .

So glad it helps! Here are the acronyms I like using:

For sharps: Fat Cats Get Donuts At Every Breakfast

For flats: Blowing Easy Air Develops Great Control + FinesseΒ
