    Yes, it does work.

    Father Charles Goes Down And Ends Battle
    will give you the order of sharps in a key signature.

    dna sdrawkcab
    Battle Ends And Down Goes Charles' Father
    will give you the order of flats.

    the clef doesn't matter.

    Hmm i quite like the one you have...mine doesnt quite work backwards for the flats....though the flat one backwards kind of makes sense for the order of sharps
