These are going by the modes Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, Locrian (an easy way to remember is I DO PHollow Lonely Men And Laugh) STEP THREE: New Chords! After you learn these, figure out what the best key is for this song and then write that scale down.
i.e. C Dm Em F G Am Bdim 1 -2 -3 4 5 -6 7dim
STEP FOUR: Rewrite Now for the easy part. Take your chords and exchange them with the new ones! In case you didn't understand the process, (based on the chords above) if you have a C chord, you replace it with an A. If you have an F, you replace it with a D! Simple as that.
i.e. C Dm Em F G Am Bdim 1 -2 -3 4 5 -6 7dim A Bm C#m D E F#m G#dim
STEP FIVE: Play it You are now ready to play your transposed song. Have fun with it! And in case you're wondering, this works on any song. I'll even do it for you! Here's a verse of Yellow by Coldplay
i.e. (Say the chord progression was this) Am F C Em (Replace it with this) F#m D A C#m
I'm gonna say that this is in B, so....
B F#6 Look at the stars, look how theuy shine for you Emaj7 and everything you do, yeah they were all yellow. B F#6 I came along, I wrote a song for you. Emaj7 And all the things you do, and it was called 'yellow'. B F#6 So when I took my turn. Emaj7 B Badd11 B Oh, what a thing to have done, and it was all yellow.
B C#m D#m E F# G#m Adim 1 -2 -3 4 5 -6 7dim E F#m G#m A B C#m D#dim
And KAPOW it's done! So have fun singing all the songs you want, even if you're a horrible singer!
E B6 Look at the stars, look how theuy shine for you Amaj7 and everything you do, yeah they were all yellow. E B6 I came along, I wrote a song for you.
