Miniseries #010: Reno Re-Visited 04
The Nashville number system. We can relate the nashville number system to the Fourth/first, second, and third string postions. To use my method, you must first know the key of the song or tune you are about to play. Second, you must know the notes of the fingerboard. Since we know, from previous lessons, that the fourth string position consists of the 1-3-5 of the major scale, we can easily see what the 1-5 chords are to any key. You can also use the second string positon...3-5-1...to find the same, and also the third string postion....5-1-3...to find the same. We can also easily find the 4 chord, since we know that the 4th degree of any major scale is 1/2 step away(higher) from the third.
