comment How to formulate a chord on the piano?
I repeat: No, they are not the same on guitar but different on piano in any objective sense. What you say probably makes sense to you, but it is in no way universally true. I see and understand your mental model of the instruments, and it is just one possible model, not truth. I find this whole discussion pointless and unproductive as you are not willing to listen, and have flagged it in the hope that a moderator removes it. If that happens, I welcome you to try again, in a more constructive mood.

@Rein: You equate "shape" with "voicing". This is not obvious to anyone except you. It's even less obvious how you with that viewpoint can claim that the "shapes" are different on piano. I do not agree with you on any of your three points above. What you say probably makes sense to you, but it is in no way universally true.

comment How to formulate a chord on the piano?
1. You now switched from "Moving shapes around" to "transposing a voicing", which isn't the same thing. 2. Your statement that all guitar voicings can be moved orthogonally to change key is false, unless you have more fingers and joints then the rest of humanity. And in any case transposing an open chord requires you to change the position of your fingers, and if that isn't changing "shape", then transposing a chord definitely does not change shape on the piano. I stand by my answer, and I don't think we'll get further.

I'm sorry, I think we are talking about different things here. It's patently true that an an open C major and an open G major chord have completely different shapes on a guitar, do you not agree?

Right, you need to think of each key on the keyboard in sequence, forgetting that they are black or white. Then it becomes simpler.

@Rein: Moving shapes around is not in any way less complex than transposing a key on a piano. In fact, quite the opposite. I can transpose a chord on a piano to another key, despite never played piano, I can't move shapes around, after having played the guitar for 20 years. :-)

comment How long would it take to learn to tune a piano?
I'm not interested in becoming a good piano tuner. I'm interested in tuning my piano. As such much of your answer shoots to the side of the goal. :)

comment Why do minor keys sound “sad”?
@Ben: Why is anything stereotyped? Someone somewhere claimed it was so, and everyone else believed him. I personally never understood it. It's just one of these self-perpetuating myths that few question.

@rshallit: Yes, you would. Nothing in the question is limited to the major and minor traids.

@Agares: No, that's just the basic major/minor chords.
