How to Add Flats to Flat Scales in Music

The addition of flats in the order listed above on the Circle of Fifths is done very predictably.  The first flat scale, F Major, has only B flat.  The next scale is the B Flat major scale.  It includes the B flat added previously in the F major scale PLUS adds E flat which is four notes above.

Each flat added after that on the circle is 4 notes above the last flat.  Once you understand this simple pattern you will be able to easily remember all seven flat key signatures in music.
