Where do I need to transpose chords?

You transpose chords if

-         you can grab chords in another key easier or

-         you want to sing the song in a higher or lower pitch. For example if you want to sing with children you use a higher pitch.

 

With the   Ukulele-Circle is the pefect tool to  easily transpose  chords.

 

 

With the   Ukulele-Circle you can on the backside  easily transpose . Also an  explanation is given here.

 

The keys are displayed in two circle. The inner circle can be turned around.

If you want to sing a song which is written in the keys C, G and  D  to another key, e.g. G you proceed as follows:

 

Move the G of the inner circle below the C in the outer circle.

Now you can read:

 

C will become G

G will become D

D will become A im

 

C,D,E  becomes G,D,A

 

 

 

Beside this you will find on the backside of the  Ukulele-Circle also additional information:

 

-         A display of the fretboard with notes

-         An example how to grab chords (e.g. G-chord)

-         An example who a tabulature looks like.
