CHANGING THE KEY OF A SONG USING A KEY CHANGE CHART


Now and again you might want to change the chords of a song to a different key.
The chart below will help you to do this.
(Note I have trimmed this chart down, leaving out the less common keys, but you can get a full chart from the net if you need it)

Scale Degree 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Key Signature Chord Chord Chord Chord Chord Chord Chord Chord
Key C C D E F G A B C
Key G G A B C D E F# G
Key D D E F# G A B C# D
Key A A B C# D E F# G# A
Key E E F# G# A B C# D# E
Key B B C# D# E F# G# A# B
Key Ab Ab Bb C Db Eb F G Ab
Key Eb E F G Ab Bb C D Eb
Key Bb Bb C D Eb F G A Bb
Key F F G A Bb C D E F
For example Dr. Uke's version of 'Green Door' in the Key of A, uses the chords 'A', 'D', 'E7' and 'A7'. To change this song to the Key of C;* Look at the row for the Key of A and the row for the Key of C.
* For an 'A' chord in the original key (column 1) we change it to a 'C' chord (column 1).

* For a 'D' chord in the original key (column 4) we change it to a 'F' chord (column 4).

* For an 'E' chord in the original key (column 5) we change it to a 'G' chord (column 5).

When a chord name is modified with a 7th, b, # (or minor, diminished etc) add this to the new key chord name when it appears.So, the chords for 'Green Door' in the Key of C will be; 'C', 'F', 'G7', and 'C7'. You can follow this pattern to change any song from key to key.
Col Hamblyn suggested a little device to make this process easier. It also does lots of other things too. You can check it out at this web address. http://www.mymasterkey.com/order.cfm

Changing key can be done in a similar way, using the DIY Key Change Wheel
