ok, so for music theory, we have this assignment that says stuff like " major 2 sharps" "g minor" "major 2 flats" etc. We have to either give the key signature or the number of sharps or flats for the given key. I came across one and I got stuck. I looked on the circle of key chart to check, but I didn't see it. Is there a major scale with 7 flats? As far as I know, naturally the most flats you can have is 6, and that's for F# major. So how could there be one with 7 flats? Unless it's an altered scale or something... What could it be? Thanks.

Methinks you have a defective circle of fifths chart?



Also, be careful: though the keys of Gb and F# are enharmonic, Gb is the one with 6 flats

Ah. Mine didn't have that one. Thanks I thought Cb major would be the same as B major though?


Edit: one more thing so I don't have to make a new thread:

There's a section on notating triads and 7th chords. I can do that, but some of the abbreviations the sheet I don't really know yet. What does AMM with a little 7 by the last M mean? Also, Bbm with a little 7? I know what the 7 is, but what's the difference of a big M and a little m? I'm thinking one means major and one means minor, but I'm not sure which is which. So DM would be D major, while Bbm would be B-flat minor? FM is f-major...I think. But what would GMm7 be? Thanks again.

That would be G Major with a minor 7.

*Spoliers if this this is an actual question on your homework!*

The notes would be G B D F

that's what I had, I just wasn't sure.

What does a little o mean? Like C, and then the o is above and right to the c, like the 7s are? Also, Say it's D with a little d above it with a line through it, and then a little 7? Would that be Ddiminished7?

The first one is C Full Diminished 7 while the second one is D half Diminished 7. A fully diminished chord is a diminished chord with a diminished 7 (a bb7). A half diminished chord is a diminished chord with a minor 7 (a b7).

So the C Fully Diminished would be C Eb Gb Bbb

D Half Diminished would be D F Ab C

What is a c flat

It is B in all technicality. It's called enharmonics.

I've never heard it called a GMm7 before. It's just a G7, surely. The dominant 7.

I have heard of the chord GmM7, which is a G minor with a Major 7. G Bb D F#

^ indeed, Cb is enharmonic to B, but don't let that fool you for all intents and purposes it is not the same thing.

As far as I know, naturally the most flats you can have is 6, and that's for F# major.


Just so you know, the key of Gb has 6 flats, which is the enharmonic to F#, but I think it's pretty obvious that you can't have flat notes in a sharp key so keep that in mind when you are doing this stuff. And for reference, the key of F# has 6 sharps.
