    Hey guys, we are back with Live Lesson EP027! This month’s topic is: The Circle Of Fifths.

    In this session, we’ll debunk the mystic behind the circle of fifths. You’ll learn why this tool is revered in music theory applications and how it can be applied to ukulele playing.

    This month’s topic should stir up some great questions! So please post all you have below and I hope you guys join us for the live stream. 🙂

    Hi Joe, just to help Matt answer your question, can you clarify what you mean about Roman numerals? Do you mean that you just can’t read them (ie. MDCCCXXXVI), or is it something else? Are you talking about the numbers attached to the chords in songs (ie. I, V, IV, vi)?
