Chord charts
« on: November 11, 2007, 06:33:55 PM »

After just returning from Melodeons at Witney , I thought it might be useful to have a link to the Chord charts Lester and Dazbo created
for DG .

It should be mentioned in the download section that it is for DG only. It has very little value for other tunings.

Yes

Agreed for semitone systems, but for other fourth apart systems it would transpose directly.

Well yes, but that's where the transposing comes in. 
For example: 
to transpose from D/G to C/F  move all the chord names down one whole tone so

G becomes F
D becomes C
A becomes G
B becomes A
C becomes Bflat
E becomes D

Would it be useful to have a table showing the equivalent chord names for say D/G C/F Bflat/Eflat G/C and others?  I'll put one together if anyone would find it useful.

Well its a bit late reaction, but I am very interested in Chord in different keys.
I understand that it if you change the letters you can make it for every key of melodeon. But then you don't have such a nice pdf file. If it is not much work I am interested in CF and AD
