Somewhere on the web there used to be a site where one could print two circles with the names of chords on them. The circles could be assembled into a spinner which converts chords from one key to another.

Does anybody know the URL for that site? I can't find it using Google.

Thanks.

If I wanted one of those I'd doctor a cheap old slide rule. It wouldn't be equal-temperament circular but for most of what leeneia plays that would be an advantage.

And in case anyone is interested in a chart for the Circle of Fifths, click here.

I still have my slide rule somewhere. It's old, but it certainly wasn't cheap. It was an essential professional tool in the days BC. Two circles cut from card is both cheap and accessible to anyone and it works a treat.

About twenty years ago, I needed something to make sure I got transpositions right so I adapted the idea from a circular calculator I had seen. Two circles cut from card each with the circle of fifths on and fixed together with a split pin from a local stationery shop did good service for several years until I eventually acquired some notation software and it gradually fell out of use.

There's also a chord slide rule at Bruce Olson's Website, which is available through QuickLinks here at Mudcat. It's also available at California State University, Fresno.

The slide rule is here (click) (or below).

It is nice to see that our society tries to accommodate all kinds of thinking, whether circular, linear or plotted on X and Y axes.

Or at least it does when it comes to tranposing tunes.

Thanks for all the info. This is an interesting thread.
