Musically lost? Find your way with the Chromawheel Music Compass. Use your eyes, ears, and the music compass to find the musical key of any song, as well as explore different scales and chords. Use the red tonic piece as your start point, then add more note pieces to make a pattern. Tip: Rotating the entire pattern will transpose it to a new key!
