Applications

The Chord Wheel really is an invaluable tool.  As you see above, there are four primary applications.  While there may be one or two particular uses that you'll appreciate now, each of the applications are an essential piece of becoming an acccomplished musician.  Simply click on any of the categories above to discover just how the Chord Wheel can help you understand the art and science of chord progressions.

One of the reasons for the success of The Chord Wheel is the wide range of musicianship levels that can leverage the device.  If you have a Masters degree in music and have retained your knowledge, then you might not need a leg up in understanding your theory.  Likewise, there have been some students at the very, very beginning of music study that have found it difficult to understand the need or uses of the device.  However, the vast majority of musicians (including many professionals and teachers) find The Chord Wheel and ideal "cheat sheet" for chord theory.  If you know how to play an Am chord but don't know how exactly how it's related to a C Major 7th, then The Chord Wheel is for you.

At the core of the device you will find a Circle of Fifths but don't be fooled; the utility of The Chord Wheel is far greater than any other 'circle of fifths wheel cutout' that you can freely download on-line.  There's a good reason that's it's a perennial best-seller.  Click on a category above to begin exploring just how it can help your understanding of music.
