Hey Guys,
I'm trying to transpose a song for my younger son, using the capo so it would be a little easier to play for him. And I'm having a little trouble-- I thought maybe one of you guys can help me out. . .

The song that we are trying to figure out is called: You Make me Feel by Cobra Starship - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BJNC2yWw6I

I believe that the original chords are:
Intro:
Gm, Dm, Bb
Eb/Bb, F/C, Gm

Bb, Dm, Eb/Bb, F/C, Gm

Anyway, I came across a slower acoustics version of the song using the Capo on the 3rd Fret-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=derI3oYAQQg

But I'm still having trouble figuring out the chord forms- If anyone can help,...I would be very grateful! Thanks in advance everyone. . .

There's a transpose function included on the page, you can set it to tell you the chords transposed up or down as much as you like.

Eb/Bb, F/C, Gm
For the intro, capo on 3rd fret play this: Em , Bm ( Bm form barre chord @5th fret) , G Then C , D, Em. I'm assuming you know that this type "C/F" notation usually represents "X" (chord) with "X" as the bass note.

Bb, Dm, Eb/Bb, F/C, Gm

That would be: G, Bm (barre), C, D , Em

Alternately, you could as was suggested, transpose to "down 3 half steps" on the tab page, and get the same result. Each fret is a semitone, or halftone if you prefer.

Although, you would learn a bit more, working through it yourself via the chromatic scale.
