The Lesson steps then explain how to write the key signature using both clefs, including the display order and line / space staff positions of the notes, and the sharp / flat accidentals.
For a quick summary of this topic, have a look at Key signature.All Keys On 1 page
The B-double-flat minor scale has 5 double-flats, 2 flats.
Warning: The B-double-flat key is a theoretical minor scale key.
> Its key signature would contain either double-sharps or double flats.
> It is rarely used in practice, because it is too complex to use.
> It is not on the Circle of fifths diagram, which contains the most commonly used keys.
> There is always an identical minor scale that you can use in its place, which is on the Circle of 5ths.
> The A natural minor scale sounds the same / contains the same note pitches, which are played in the same order (the scales are enharmonic), so it can be used as a direct replacement for the B-double-flat minor scale.
These note names are shown below on the treble clef followed by the bass clef.
The white keys are named using the alphabetic letters A, B, C, D, E, F, and G, which is a pattern that repeats up the piano keyboard.
Every white or black key could have a flat(b) or sharp(#) accidental name, depending on how that note is used. In a later step, if sharp or flat notes are used, the exact accidental names will be chosen.
The audio files below play every note shown on the piano above, so middle C (marked with an orange line at the bottom) is the 2nd note heard.
The Bbb natural minor scale has 5 double-flats, 2 flats.
To understand why the B-double-flat minor scale has 5 double-flats, 2 flats, have a look at the Bbb natural minor scale page, which shows how to identify the note positions and names for this scale.
Since this is a none-based key signature, the music theory rules for constructing key signatures containing nones are covered in the next step.
