Grishka's home-made interactive electronic transposer for English note names:

Copy the last two lines of this message to an editor or a word processing software. It is absolutely essential to use/apply a monospaced font such as Courier. At the beginning of the second line, insert spaces until two notes you want to map are in the same column, i.e. one on top of the other. Blanks between two letters signify either the letter to the left sharpened or the one to the right flatted. Now read all the other note mappings in the same direction (upwards or downwards).

To calculate capo positions, use the second line for what you want to finger and the first line for what you want to hear. Then the number of spaces you inserted equals the number of the fret for the capo.
