Default Tranforming maj to min


Quite some years ago, a Notation Composer user asked if there was a function to convert maj to min. There was none. In response I worked out the procedure provided below. Perhaps a maj to min function can be added now to the next Composer version.

I have found it quite useful, to change for instance 8 bars to min, as an insert to give the vocalist a bit of a breather, as an intro to a song, or to add general interest to an overused song, etc.

The procedure I had suggested all those years ago is as follows:

1. Transpose original key to A maj.
2. Change the key signature to C maj. Do not transpose but just change the key.
3. Lower all #.
4. Transpose to original key.
5. Make any adjustments to taste but also to account for the harmonic and melodic modes.

Best wishes,
