Overview
Transposing by using chords as numbers:

Scales are 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

- Since scales are build the same regardless of which note you start on. The chords that coincide with each scale are the same.

The 1 will always be Major (I)
The 2 will always be minor (ii)
The 3 will always be minor (iii)
The 4 will always be Major (IV)
The 5 will always be Major (V)
The 6 will always be minor (vi)
The 7 will always be diminished (vii)

Use two keys and CAGED Shapes (or capo) to transpose!
