    Does anyone know how to convert guitar chords to...

    Hey, can someone convert these guitar chords to piano for me including LH/RH movements for me? For I had seen someone on this site, convert piano chords including the LH/RH movements to guitar. Can the same be done the other way around? Reason is I want my piano player to play exactly the way I will be playing these chords.

    Key:Gb

    Chords:
    xx4122
    xx6674
    xx8676
    xx9677
    xx4442
    xx6664

    Are those sound good chords or do you know the name?
    If so just tell him the chord name. That is all he needs to know. Now as to what RH/LH pattern leave that up to him.
    Now if you want a chord in a specific octave then that is another story. If you want it in another octave just tell him.

    Chord names - Don't bet the farm on what names I came up with.
    xx4122 = Gbsus2
    xx6674 = Dbsus4
    xx8676 = Gb
    xx9677 = Bsus2
    xx4442 = B
    xx6664 = C#

    Is this anywhere close to what you were asking about?

    if you want him to play exactly the same voicings. this shouldn't be too hard to ear out.

    just play every one of those notes in your tab one at a time, and find the same one on piano.

    i have no way of doing this quickly. if your piano player reads standard notation, you could probably find a tab/notation converter somewhere? i think some guitar programs can do this.

    just using the chord names won't get you the right voicings though.

    the guitar voicings are unusual for piano because of the way it's laid out.

    on the other hand, i personally wouldn't recommend your piano player exactly the same thing as you.

    unless maybe it was a single notes passage or something where you absolutely wanted that for effect, but for chords, i would maybe change it up a little. even if i wanted it to follow the same thing kind of pitch or melody wise as the guitar.

    the only way for you to know for sure exactly what you want though is to try it out.

    I am passionate about (advert removed by mod) and as per my knowledge try this Guitar chord – G Major. The notes in this are the 1st, 3rd, and 5th interval: G, B, D. This would correspond, in the first position, to:1st String: Open, G ,2nd String: 2nd Fret, D ,3rd String, 3rd Fret, G ,4th String, 2nd Fret, B

    No sales advertising here. Thanks.

    Well this is what I also have in mind when I saw the guitar chords. Pretty much this would be the same as to what I could have gotten for a piano chords. But mostly, whatever the guitar chords of one song, I use that for the piano.
