Key, capo, and transposing
By default, when you first create a song it is assigned the key of C.
You can change the song’s key by tapping on the song’s current key. The key editor popover will be shown:
Tap the various buttons to set the required key. When done, you have two options:
Set key only – you might use this when you have pasted in a song that is set in a key other than C and you wish to update the key to reflect the current version of the song.
Transpose to key – all chords within the song (as well as the chord palette) will be transposed to the new key.
Note that the ability to set or transpose the key is also available during perform mode, i.e. when not editing the song.
For guitarists, you can also set a capo for a song. Doing this also updates all chords within the song to reflect the new value. Just tap on the capo field and select a new value from the menu:
When you set a new capo, SongSheet will update all the chords in the song to match. Tap again and set No capo to return all chords to normal.
The capo field will be hidden from view when viewing a song (i.e. not in edit mode) and no capo is set.
