It’s the staple of popular music. Probably the most common chord progression there is.
But what do the numbers mean? It’s a question that comes up often.
Learning the Number System (or Nashville Number System) has been one of the best things I’ve ever learned on the piano.
It’s allowed me to memorize chord progression easily, create my own progressions and allowed me to change keys super fast.
So here are the timecodes:
– How it works – 0:22
– Building chords from the numbers – 0:52
– Using it in a chord progression – 1:16
– Using it in different key signatures – 1:27
