Talk about chops! Comprehend the key structure like never before.
Instantly transpose any progression into each and every key. Easily
Take complexity out of learning your invaluable chord theory.
There are numerous instances in which we must transpose a given progression into a different key. Perhaps we are arranging for instruments with non-concert tuning. Or we're accompanying a vocalist who needs the progression in a lower (or higher) range. If we're composing on a guitar and we decide to throw on a capo to get a fresh sound, you'll soon need to transpose when it's time to communicate the progression.
If the following sounds ridiculously easy, then you get the idea.
With the Chord Wheel in hand, set the disk to the original key and note the original chords. (To make things even easier, the Chord Wheel's transparent disk was designed for use with a dry erase marker. In this manner noting the chords is really a breeze.) Now turn the transparent disk to the new key and read off the new chords.
Even if your progression modulated to five different keys throughout the composition, as long as you aligned the first key of the song and know what the first key needed to be transposed to, all the changes and modulations follow in turn.
Yes, it's too easy.
