Q: Why would I use this site?
Chordchanger.com was created in order to provide the guitar-playing community with a useful, free tool to transpose songs into a different key for guitar players.
Q: What is transposing and why would I do it?
Transposing is the act of converting a song into a different key. You might want to do it to find a key that works better with your voice, or simply to choose a version of the song that has chords that are easier for you to play.
Q: Where can I find songs to use with this site?
Check out the following sites:
Note that you'll want to get chord sheets and not tablature, as Chordchanger.com only handles chords at the moment. Adding to the confusion is that the word "tabs" is used really loosely and can refer to chords, tablature, or a combination of both. Chordchanger is pretty good at ignoring anything that it doesn't understand.
Q: Once I have a song, what do I do with it?
Copy and paste your song into the edit window. You can use the arrow buttons to transpose the song up or down in key. The double arrow buttons will transpose by a whole step (e.g. F to G), and the others will transpose by a half step (e.g. F to F#).
The text window is fully editable - you can even write a song from scratch if you want!
Once everything looks right, click "Switch to View Mode". Hover over any chord to see the chord diagram. Click the "Print" button to get a hard copy.
