The Nashville Number System is a method of transcribing music by denoting the scale degree on which a chord is built.

The Nashville Number System is a method of transcribing music by denoting the scale degree on which a chord is built. It was developed by Neal Matthews in the late 1950s as a simplified system for The Jordanaires to use in the studio and further developed by Charlie McCoy. It resembles the Roman numeral and figured bass systems traditionally used to transcribe a chord progression since as early as the 1700s. The Nashville Number System was compiled and published in a book by Chas Williams in 1988.

The Nashville Numbering System is a method of denoting chord letter symbols by using roman numerals, and it's . Now you should have a good understanding of the Nashville Number System and its use in composition, improvisation and songs transposing.

The Nashville Numbering System is a method of denoting chord letter symbols by using roman numerals, and it's one of the most important concepts taught in guitar lessons, really useful when dealing with chord progressions. Here below you find a chart with the Nashville Numbers for the keys of C and G. The table shows the chords of the C and G keys and their scale degree in Roman numbers (I,ii,iii, IV,V, vi, vii°). Below you find some useful resources for moving forward with the study of chord progressions

The Nashville Number System (JamPlay Guides). Learning the Number System depends first on a fundamental understanding of the Major Scale. Let's take a moment and look at what makes a scale, a MAJOR Scale.

The Nashville Number System (JamPlay Guides). Every scale is made up a unique 'chemistry' of whole steps and half steps - distances between notes in a scale (also called intervals).

THE NASHVILLE NUMBER SYSTEM In the late 50's, Neil Matthews devised a musical number system for the Jordanaires to use in the studio. Charlie McCoy and fellow studio musicians began adapting Matthews' number system into chord charts. The Nashville Number System has evolved into a complete method of writing chord charts and melodies---combining Nashville shorthand with formal notation standards.   The Nashville Number System is 130 pages with a step by step method of how to write a Nashville number chart for any song. Included with each NNS book in Edition 7 is the cd, "String Of Pearls". This is a 10 song cd of  instrumentals, including, Amazing Grace. I walk you through the details of each song and explain the Number System tools used to write the charts. Now, while listening to the cd, you can see and hear how Nashville number charts work. THE NASHVILLE NUMBER SYSTEM includes a collection of handwritten number charts for the songs on the cd, String Of Pearls. Each song is charted by hand from the cd by:   • Charlie McCoy (Hee-Haw)   • David Briggs (Session Keyboardist/Arranger) • Eddie Bayers (Session drummer)   • Jimmy Capps (Studio guitarist, Grand Ole Opry Staff Band) • Brent Rowan (Studio guitarist/Producer) • Lura Foster (Charts for TV shows: Nashville Now, Music City Tonight, Primetime Country) • John Hobbs (Session Keyboardist) • Mike Chapman (Session Bassist) • Biff Watson (Session Guitarist) • Chris Farren (Producer/Guitarist) • Tony Harrell (Session Keyboardist/Studio Owner) Each of these musicians wrote 5 number charts in his or her style from the String Of Pearls cd. For example, the song, String Of Pearls, has charts written by: Charlie McCoy, Brent Rowan, John Hobbs, Jimmy Capps and Biff Watson. The song, Waylon, has charts written by Tony Harrell, Lura Foster, Chris Farren, Biff Watson and Eddie Bayers. The idea is that you’ll be able to compare, side by side, some of the different styles of notation and symbols you can use to chart the same piece of music. So, as you listen to a song on the cd, you can flip between different charts written of the same song. These different charts represent the kinds of numbering techniques that you are liable to run into in almost all of the major recording and television studios, clubs, showcases, rehearsal halls, and other situations where music is performed in Nashville.

Looks like this book is the de-facto standard. I had seen it mentioned in multiple places including a youtube instruction video on the system. It's not a large book but the information is what I was looking for. There are a number of places to get the the basics, but this book goes well past that.

I'd consider myself to be an intermediate player and the included songs are challenging to me. So far I've been working on two songs and I can play them pretty well but usually still make a few mental mistakes changing chords. The songs have a number of chord transitions within some measures and working on those has been interesting. Like any instruction book, don't expect to learn the material without doing some work.

I bought this book because I wanted to find out what the Nashville number system was all about and how it differed from the numbers that jazz musicians commonly refer to--usually in Roman numerals. Not much difference, really. I once saw a jazz pianist coach his bassist through a live performance of an old jazz standard that the young bassist didn't know by simply flashing fingers at each chord change--and there were more than just three chords in that tune. When a jazz musician says "IV chord," he's saying exactly what a Nashville player says when he says "4 chord." It's just that they got there by different routes.

I found this book fascinating, particularly as to the lengths to which Nashville-using musicians have each gone to flesh out the Nashville number system. It's a bit funny, though, because it ends up being almost as complicated as learning standard music notation, if you go the whole way. They just use different symbols for the same things--like a diamond for whole note, for example. I'm not at all sure that it really wouldn't be just as easy to become good at reading standard music notation as reading Nashville. But this book is a fascinating and fun read, particularly the various and varied actual handwritten pages of Nashville notation made by experienced musicians.

This is a cool book, however if you are looking to get in to using the nashville number system I recommend starting with the book called "Song Charting Made Easy" by Jim Riley. To me that was a better introduction and foundation to the system, and then use this book as the second step, as it has some different info and info from the other book presented in new ways.
This book also includes a bunch of handwritten charts, which are much more helpful and interesting to understand and analyze after learning the core of the system from the Jim Riley book.

Shows from the musicians view on how to chart a song. The CD is very helpful on showing different methods to get the same results.

I have used the nashville number system for years, but never new that it was this extensive.....learned so much! Going to make a big difference in my charting and be a hugh plus when we have set-in musicians......
This is a good starting point for understanding and applying the Nashville number system to ones playing. However, the book could have been better organized, more detailed in its instruction and less heavy on the handwritten examples which are, in some cases, hard to read. The musical examples were good. I get why all examples are original, but more familiar songs would be helpful too.
