Git(hub): change branch?

I’ve forked a repo on github and then made a few changes on master branch.
But I made a mistake, I had to work on a new branch not on the master one.

Can I change branch or should I fork the master again, then make the branch and apply the changes I made?

    Rename your local branch:

    git branch -m master newbranch

    Push it to your remote (let’s say myremote):

    git push myremote newbranch

    Create a master branch from github’s original remote (say origin):

    git branch master origin/master

    Forcefully push it:

    git push myremote +master:master

    This should do it.
