playing bass

I <3 Wikipedia

Brushing up on music theory, I was perusing the Wikipedia page on "key signature" today. I learned at an early age the following mnemonics for the order of sharps and flats:

Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle (sharps)
Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles' Father (flats)

Now, thanks to the wonder and glory that is Wikipedia, I am made aware of more modern and fun mnemonic aids!

Father Christmas Gave Dad An Electric Blanket

Blanket Exploded And Dad Got Cold Feet

(Thanks also to the wonder and genius of Firebug for allowing me to copy the above formatted text more efficiently...)
