Re: transpose

Hi there,

A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#

You can do it yourself using the above list. The capo is on the third fret so take a chord, say E. Now now count up 3: 1 = F, 2 = F# and 3 = G. You just have to remember that if you get to G# you start again at A.

If it happens to be a flat key they progression is:

A, Bb, B, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F, Gb, G, Ab

I think we were reading one another's minds Z.  Here's the link:  http://www.chordie.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=15164

And for your refrence, it's right at the top of this section (Acoustic).
