How to transpose only Guitar chord names for Capo use?

• Sep 18, 2015 - 11:55

Hi all,

how can I transpose only the names of Guitar chords without affectiong the related music notation?


I notated a score in C minor (Eb major) for piano and violin. Guitar chord names are written also, but they would be much nicer to play with a Capo on first fret - so I want to transpose only the written chord names one step lower and add a note "Capo 1st fret".

Thanks for any helpful hint,



You could also trasnspose the whole staff using Notes / Transpose, then transpose the notes back just using the arrow keys. But really, the facility provided to add the capo chords in parentheses may well be exactly what you want already.
