Some may already know this but was googling a way to memorize all the key signatures tonight as I am hoping to find something like I did for memorizing all the notes on the fretboard up to 12 fret which I now have memorized all the non flats and sharps at pretty quick pace almost instant.

anyway check this out as below you will see some tricks for memorizing the sharps and flats:

Fat Cats Go Down Alley Endings Boldly Fighting F – C – G – D – A – E – B – F Sharps in order they appear.

BEAD Games Come First B – E – A – D – G – C – F Flats in order of appearance.

not bad tricks but now look closer at this:

F C G D A E B

B E A D G C F

you notice anything there? you only need to learn one of them read sharps backwards its the same as flats lol… So if you know the sharps then you know the flats as you can just do the sharps backwards. To be honest I think the saying for the flats is easier than the one for sharps.

Anyway interesting relationship. if I find more I will post.

here is some other sayings as well if like these more.
