For the benefit of those who haven't the time nor the inclination to seri­ously study transposition, we have devised the following chart, whereby anyone acquainted with the chords of the Ukulele, can easily learn to change from one key to another.
Each letter in the first column of the chart, is the name of a Key Chord, and all other chords,-reading horizontally from it, are the attendant har­monies or chords belonging to that key, or, closely connected with it. The 1st,2nd and 3rd columns, show the chords in major-, the 4th,5th and 6th columns, their minor connections; the 7th,8th, 9th, 10th and 11th columns, are chords that are allied to them, either through the major, or their minor relations.
If we have an accompaniment in the key of C, commencing with the chord of C, and wish to transpose the same to the key of D,we find under the given chord of C, the chord D, which must be taken in its place,andso on through the entire piece, always finding the corresponding chord of the new key directly under or above the chord to be transposed.
