I admit I've used this site a number of times. It works best if your source comes from a Word document, not from the Internet. Also, the songs I'm transposing have the chords above the lyrics, not embedded.

The site is not perfect by any means, but it certainly has its uses - especially if I'm in a hurry (or just lazy).

It gives an explanation of how it works, but to give an example you can do this.

I just pulled up the last example of a song I looked up the lyrics for that also had tabs. Here is the link for that.


http://www.classic-country-song-lyrics.com/ahundredyearsfromnowlyricswithchords.html

So then I copied and pasted the entire lyrics (including the chords) into that website and had it transposed to G#. It came out different. I can't guarantee it's accurate, but there were different chords above the words, so I'm assuming it did.

Stanron, click on the word "Paste" for an explanation. Your format is not accepted yet, but you can ask the programmer, whose email is given at the bottome of the help page.

A simple programme for simple cases only, but maybe what some Mudcatters have been waiting for. Transposing chord symbols is helpful not only when transposing a song to suit your voice range, but also when using a capo for ease of fingering.

I entered this

|C---|F---|C---|G---|
C---|Am---|F---|G7---|

and told it to transpose it from C to G. It just returned the original text without transposition.

I suppose the fault is mine but what is the fault?

What kind of input does it take? I presume it's just a textual guitar/uke chord chart of some sort - they don't give you any hint about the syntax.

I just found this link and thought other people might find it useful. It's an automatic key changer to change the song from one key to another.
