Get it? Country "Music Theory"?

My mind was wandering on my interstate commute today.

Any more?

MOOD:

A minor key is SAD . . . . . . Example: A song about your ex-girlfriend getting married
A major key is HAPPY . . . . Example: A song about your ex-wife getting married

SHARPS AND FLATS:

The key of A has three sharps
Your truck has four flats (If a song, it should be in a minor key)

You need a "Peaty" corner, Laphroaig is not smoky at all!

I laughed but I see a flaw in the circle diagram.
Rednecks that I know don’t drink scotch.
Perhaps Beam or Boone’s if we need something in a 5th.
But not scotch.
Unless that’s the only alcohol on hand.

Where is Four Roses? (It's A Good Year Four the Roses.)
Wild Turkey 101 for a substitution.

Seriously that looks like some city slicker liquor.

I thought of the "Circle of Fifths" while driving. When I got home, I googled "Liquor bottles in a circle". I was surprised to see the scotch picture, but it already had "Circle of Fifths" on it. Indeed, I would have preferred Jack and Jim to the brothers' Glenn (Fiddich and Livet). 😂
