Subject: RE: Help: Figuring out chord equivalencies
The only thing that ever mixes me up when I'm transposing is remembering that moving two steps up from E brings you to F# not F and that two steps up from B is C# not C. The basic chords for a song will usually only contain those notes that are in the scale of the song so if it doesn't quite sound right you may be accidentally throwing in major when you need a minor or vice versa.
