Do a Google search for “Song Title chords” (using title of your favorite song) and you’ll find a dozen versions. Enter “Song Title easy chords” and you’ll find a half dozen more. BUT they will be Guitar or Ukulele chords, not Strumstick chords.
The new Strumstick Chord Changer Wheel comes to the rescue!
This simple device shifts the chords from whatever Guitar key they are in to good old Key of D, the main Strumstick key.
It can also shift chords from D to G, for G Strumstick players. See what "Key" means below, if that word is unfamiliar.
The Chord Changer Wheel is FREE (download it, print on paper, cut out two pieces, put together.) or $17 assembled, postage included.
Basically, you find chords to a song. It’s in some funky key (it’s not in key of D) boo-hoo. You jot down the several chords in the song, rotate the wheel until you see those chords, and right opposite them are the Key of D Strumstick chord names. Pencil the Strumstick chords in, substituting for the original chords, and strum away, happy, happy!
For the Curious and Unafraid: What does Key mean?
Key means Team.
A bunch of baseball players make up a team.
Different teams have different names (Yankees, Red Sox...) but they have the same positions on the team (pitcher, catcher, etc.).
If you think “Team” when you read the word “Key”, that’s about it.
A team of notes (in certain positions called scales) makes a Key, and the Key gets its name from the first note of the team.
The notes in a Key (team) occupy different positions called scales.
The starting note of the scale gives its name to the scale (or team, or Key). There will also be certain chords most often used in each key. That's why we say "the chords for Key of E", or "the chords for Key of D"

The Instruction CD is the audio companion to the Strumstick Instruction Book. It demonstrates what is in the book, or you can learn right from the CD. Note: The first part CD was originally played on the G Strumstick, then additional tracks were added using the D Strumstick. The information applies to both equally, (but the sound will be different). There are notes to tune the G or the D, be sure to use the correct ones.
