Do you ever wish you could change the key of a song so that it's not too high, or not so low? We've finally found the solution to your problem!
Now Text Chart Tranposer will put these charts in any key. Choose how many half-steps you want it to go up or down, for example, 5 or -6-- then whether you prefer flats or sharps. One press of a button and the work is done. Your song will instantly moved to the new key!
Text music charts are available all over the Internet. Guitar players and other instrumentalists know how easy it is to read and play from these musical charts. Usually they contain lyrics, with chords over the words. Lots of different web sites provide these chord charts for free.
But sometimes we need to transpose these charts to a new key, and that's when Text Chart Transposer comes in!
This script was originally written to be implemented into the ServiceBuilder software.
I've only used the demo page, not the actual script itself, but it's very handy. Not perfect - at least the demo occasionally makes mistakes - but overall it takes some of the chore out of transposing chord charts.
When I used the demo to transpose a chart, it didn't transpose the intro. I'm guessing this is because there are no lyrics below these chords.
Can the full version of the program transpose chords that don't have lyrics underneath them? This would be useful for intros, instrumentals, interludes, outros, etc. If not, it would seem a sort of quirk.
