Transposing

Hello, i need some help, i tried some transposing exercises today and this is just pissing me off.

let's say, if i take the progression C7m G7 F7m F and transpose it for.. A# i just need to replace the C's G's etc for A#,E etc? or i need to do something like

C,D,Eb,F,G,Ab,Bb,C and take Bb which is the 7th transform it in the bass continue the scale like Bb,C,D,Eb,F,G,Ab,Bb and then the 1th,3th,5th ,7th graus and form a new chord to give the name of A#7m??

please correct me if i did something wrong

You've got a I V IV IV progression there (I'm omitting the sevenths). C would go down a whole step to Bb (A# is too difficult a key to deal with, that's why I changed it to it's enharmonic equivalent), so the rest of the chords would go down a whole step as well.

So in the end you get Bbm7 F7 Ebm7 Eb. (Note: the minor "m" goes right after the note name.)

That what you're going for?

Wat.

I think you're overthinking it. Transposition is just taking a progression/melody/etc. and literally shifting it somewhere else, keeping all of the intervals the same.

Cm7 G7 Fm7 F transposed down a whole step would be Bbm7 F7 Ebm7 Eb. Or, if you want to use sharps to follow the A# then it would be A#m7 E#7 D#m7 D#.
