transposing is a translation of the frequencies +/- some amount, in equal parts per string.

Think of the fretboard as a coordinate system: a chord is picking out certain values on the x axis. Transposing is adding +/- x values to your fretboard-tuple.

This gets a bit mindboggling and confusing when you start studying what _keys_ are, but it's really very mathematically simple.

BTW. Feel free to find & poke me if you want more information here. My music knowledge has been languishing for a long long time, it'd be good to shake it out and share it. :-)
