The Chord Wheel - The Ultimate Tool for All Musicians. Chord wheel and circle of fourths and fifths: This a learning aid every fiddler should have in their fiddle case or notebook (see also Diatonic chord progressions. CHORD wildlifeprotection.info - Download as PDF File .pdf), Text File .txt) or read online.
Others get keen and go right through to bar chords. I haven't written those up yet - I think the basic stuff is what's most useful with my site.
Have fun, and let me know how you go. Does anyone know what on earth I'm asking about? It's bugging me.
So often I want to sing along to songs but they're out of my range. I guess the first step is to figue what my range is and then try the wheel lol ;0 0 Reply 8 years ago on Introduction Reply Upvote Sorry, can't help with the theory!
Sounds far too complicated, no wonder you have gaps in your memory. Suggestion re your range: some songs need a wider range than others, and it can be tricky to work out the best key to sing in. Our Friday Folkies group has male and female voices, so we tend to do a lot of songs in D a bit high for me, and the guys would prefer Eb, so it's a compromise; some of the women prefer to sing higher, too. This is where a capo is so great - you can try out a key, then if it's a bit low, try it with your capo on 1st, 2nd, 3rd fret..
Try singing a song like Rock My Soul, which has a narrow range and only 2 chords - start in the key of D D, A7 chords. If neither works for you, try a capo, or even a different key - the A and D7 chords are easy to play. I'll often try a song in the key of C or D , then in G, to get a quick idea of a good key for a song - then I can use a capo to bring it up a bit if needed.
Examples for Using the Circle of 5ths
Once you get an idea of your favourite key to sing in, you can try that one first for a new song, then use a capo, or transpose if needed.
I do find that my voice changes from day to day, too; Some of our group songs have 2, 3 or even 4 sets of chords written in, as we've tried out different keys at different times. One group member used to call these one "alphabet soup".
Singing along to songs is a bit of a trap- so often the recording artists have a great range they are professionals, after all and if it's a male voice, that can be hard, too.
This means we are looking at the major chords of a key built on the tonic, the fourth, and the fifth. If you proceed through them one measure at a time in each of the main 12 major and 12 minor keys of Western music, you'll recognize each immediately. Now, what's interesting is if you find the tonic of your key on the Circle, you've already found the 4th chord and the 5th chord in the key and can construct a catchy song in less than 10 seconds.
Find the tonic of your key. If you move one step clockwise, you find the 5th chord of the G-Major key.
If you move one step counter-clockwise, you've found the 4th chord. You can see how this works in C-Major below: Each key only has 3 major chords in it. You'll notice if you take one more step out in either direction you find the 2nd and 7th Chords.
This half of your circle expands your chord choices in creating progressions.
If you stick to this side of the circle you're guaranteed to have a nice, consonant chord progression for your song. Of course you can use others but it requires some study and skill to do it effectively. What this means is that both keys use the exact same notes, including any accidentals sharps or flats.
The difference is they have a different tonic and the distance relationship between the notes is changed a bit. Since they are the same notes though, this distance won't impede you from using the relative minor.
It will sound familiar due to the same notes being used but give you the opposite mood of the song. It's a nice juxtaposition that you can use as a surprise that leads right back into a chorus with the right lyrics. To move from a minor key to the relative major is the opposite.
If you have a Circle labeled like ours, then you can find the relative minor key on the inside of the circle, where C-Major's relative minor is A-Minor, G-Major's relative minor is E-minor, and so forth: There is one snag to this method that solves itself as you work with the Circle of 5ths.
The naming convention for major keys will usually use a flat accidental, such as Eb to be read as E-flat , except for F F-sharp. Minor keys largely use sharp accidentals to name the keys except for Bb.
The reason has to do with the count of semitones when constructing the chords. So for instance, D-flat major key may have Db as it's root, but the minor key C-sharp major does as well. Because C and Db are the exact same note, just named differently. Once you become more familiar with the 12 major keys and 12 minor keys you'll know which name to use and thus which key signature you're using.
Transposing Songs on the Fly If you know the melody of a song and just need to plink out the chords on a piano or strum them on a guitar so your group of non-musician friends can sing along, you can transpose a song quickly if needed, all in your head. A common use for transposition is when a song is a bit out of range for a vocalist.
All that you need to do is find the tonic of the key you want to use usually one or two steps above or below the current key and you can snag the chords right off of the circle. This is just like with our chord progression example above. You memorize this quickly after doing it a few times.
But there's nothing wrong with having the circle printed and folded up in your pocket either.
The Circle of Fifths helps us with this task. Starting at C-Major or 12 o'clock on the watch face of the circle , which is natural with no accidentals, every step you move clockwise adds one sharp to its key signature. This continues for seven steps until you're back to no sharps. WordPress Shortcode. Published in: Full Name Comment goes here.
