Blend Mode Keyboard Shortcuts

I never used to use keyboard shortcuts for blend modes.  Then about a year or so ago, I realized that the keyboard shortcuts for blend modes are actually very easy.  It always involves the Option-Shift ( PC: Alt-Shift ) keys and then one letter that's usually the first letter of the blend mode.  For example, Option-Shift-M ( PC: Alt-Shift-M ) is Multiply.  The letter O is Overlay.  The letter S gets you Screen and so on.  It doesn't work for all of them ( F is actually Soft Light ) but it's pretty darn close and since I've started using them I work a lot faster.
