The Circle of Fifths is a helpful tool with many uses. One of its most common uses is in helping you determine the chords that should be used in a
song. Each note on the circle is a 5th higher than the previous note. To illustrate, beginning with the C note on the chromatic scale, count up 5 and you end up at F. From F, count up 5 and you land on Bb. This
pattern continues around the circle, with the exception of Gb and F#, which are enharmonics (2 different names for the same note). Below the diagram are some additional ways
that the Circle of Fifths might be helpful for you.
