```Hi Skippy,

```
```is there an easy way to change the tonality of a lilypond file ?
```
```
If [as your message implies] you mean TRANSPOSE, then yes:

\transpose c fis' { \key c \major c d e f g }

```
will give you what you want. If, on the other hand, you mean change the tonality/modality (e.g., from major to lydian), that's a much more complex problem.
```
Hope this helps!
Kieren.
