Thread Name: Capoing: What Key?
Subject: RE: Capoing: What Key?
easy--Bb is played with the capo on the first fret
and then you play A ..and D and E (which become Bb, Eb, F)
do you know the 1,4,5, (circle of fifths...) where you
usually play those chords...in the key of A, the scale
is A,B,C,D,E,F,G and you play the chords corresponding
to the 1st, 4th and 5th note of that scale...A, D, and E.
google circle of fifths for more music theory info...
a good chart can be found here..it also included key signature
(the number 0f sharps or flats in that key.)
