Here is the traditional sentence Scroll taught me for the Order of Sharps.
Default 1
Remembering the Order of Sharps, allows you to figure out Keys with Sharps efficiently.
Here is the rule:
The pitch one half-step higher than the last sharp is the Key.
Earlier, we constructed a D major Scale and determined that the sharps F# and C# are required in the key of D major.
Each Key Signature’s last sharp is the scales LEADING TONE.
Remember, Scale-Degree names originate from their pitch function. The Leading Tone is the 7th Scale degree of the Major scale. In the major scale W-W-½-W-W-W-½ pattern, there is a half-step between Scale-Degree 7 and Scale-Degree 8.
The LEADING TONE leads the scale back to the TONIC.
