    Oh, I never heard that mnemonic. (Ok, so how do you get that pronunciation out of that spelling?) That’s one of those things that is so foundational and used so often that I never needed a mnemonic to remember it. But of course, this only applies in C major (I don’t even want to use the word “key” as so many people think there are more than 12 keys. There’s not. It’s misunderstanding that leads to that belief. What amazes me is that even the music schools and departments teach that misleading info.) So the more useful thing to remember is W, W, H, W, W, W, H because that will give you the proper 7 notes no matter what note you start on. And that is a major scale, the mode that is the “key” to all the other 6 modes and is the reference for the formulas of all the other modes.
