Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio answers a viewers question…
Q: I have been working at trying to figure out how to move chord progressions and melodies to other keys. The problem I have with this is understanding the relationship of the notes to the chords and scales. I think it must have something to do with the shared note groups. Only, I can tell that all of the patterns are movable and that really has me confused. Can you make a video on the ‘basics’ of transposing? Thank you.
Louis – Robins, Iowa USA
A: We can learn to analyze every intervallic distance that is involved with the note movements found between melodies and chord progressions. Once we’re able to understand how to accurately judge the distance from a tonic note to either “one particular scale tone,” or to a specific, “harmonic degree,” we will be able to transpose any melody or chord progression over into any key that we’d like. All it takes is having a knowledge of the key signatures, being familiar with the notes on your guitar neck, and spending the time that it will take to learn how to apply the use of intervals moving either scale tones or chords from one key, over into another.

Listening to Music (MUSI 112)
Professor Wright explains the way harmony works in Western music. Throughout the lecture, he discusses the ways in which triads are formed out of scales, the ways that some of the most common harmonic progressions work, and the nature of modulation. Professor Wright focuses particularly on the listening skills involved in hearing whether harmonies are changing at regular or irregular rates in a given musical phrase. His musical examples in this lecture are wide-ranging, including such diverse styles as grand opera, bluegrass, and 1960s American popular music.

Q). I’m wondering why I keep seeing different types of chord analysis? Some of it is done with all upper-case roman numerals. Other times, I’ll see it done where the minor chords are given as lower-case roman numerals, and the major chords are all upper-case. Yet other times, I’ll see that the analysis was done by using regular numbers instead of Roman Numerals. This all has me really confused. Could you make a lesson clarifying all of this chord analysis stuff? Thanks a lot!
David — Minneapolis, MN. USA
A). A system of using some kind of numbered approach to analyze the movement of chord changes in a progression is what musicians call, “Harmonic Analysis.” The common issue that will often arise with musicians around the world who learn various types of Harmonic Analysis becomes one of simply which method of Harmonic Analysis they just so happened to be taught during their own musical education. In this video, I’ll cover the Top Four methods that are generally used for analyzing chord progressions musically. Hopefully, dispelling some of the myths and confusion surrounding this very important musical ability.
As always, Thanks for writing in!
