    Thanks for that help, Jim. I actually am aware of this quirk of mine. I've had it for about 40 years now! For me, the note between G and F is F#, and I have to pause and think whenever someone says Gb. I know better, but just get sloppy. Thanks for the reminder and thanks for your past advice on double-stops. Both have been very useful.

    I just remembered a tool that Joopiter may find useful:

    https://www.amazon.com/Chord-Wheel-U.../dp/0634021427

    I bought this many, many years ago. It is a wheel of fifths, but it also shows the chords that go with each key. You can use it to transpose keys very easily.

    I'm going to write out all twelve chromatic notes for every scale, and try out the other tips posted above, to see if that helps me get it.
    We need to know from what key you are transposing C# to the other key and it's name too.

    If it is about transposing from E major to C major, this is so easy to explain:
    Looking at the circle of fifths (you don't need your deluxe one, just some in the internet as a picture ):

    You will see that C#m is under E in that circle. Always look at those 6 degrees you see. They are the base of your transposing. I refer to my previous post rather than want add any no needed information. Chords not belonging to those 6 degrees I myself transpose related, use fretboard etc. rather than some mechanical transposing tool that does not add any knowledge and you will always be just keeping rotating mechanically.

    So now it is C# instead what you want to transpose. Forget about if it is major instead minor. So you will find Am under C in the fifths circle at the same relative place. Just think it as a major chord in this case.

    Just noticed below croaky keith is right EM AbM in the key of E is an accidental

    AbM in the key of "E" is an accidental, transposing the accidental to the key of "C" is indeed EM

    Try using this tool to help figure out what notes you need for any chord:
