Instructions For Chord Transposition

The easiest way to learn to use the chart is by an example.

I am going to transpose from the key of (G) to the key of (C)

The chords we will be transposing from in the key of G will be G  Em   C   D

The chord we transpose from will always be in column  1 (highlighted in yellow}

Find the G at the bottom of column  1

Now, follow the same row straight to the right until you find the C . Notice the C is in column  6.

((All of the chords you are transposing too will be found in column  6)

Now find the E (Em) in column  1 and follow it to the right to column  6, which is A (Am)

Now find C in column  1 and follow that row to the right to column  6 which is  F

Now find  D  in column  1 and follow that row to the right to row 6 which is G.

 

G  Em  C   D  becomes  C   Am  F  G 

 

G=C

Em=Am

C=F

D=G
