Nice little reference......


CHORDS (Nashville Number System):

- This system permits you to play a song in any key

- It uses the numeric relationships between chords in a given key

- The numbers are the notes of the diatonic scale (do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti-do)


Common Keys 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Key of C: C D E F G A B

Key of D D E F# G A B C#

Key of E E F# G# A B C# D#

Key of F F G A Bb C D E

Key of G G A B C D E F#

Key of A A B C# D E F# G#

Key of Bb Bb C D Eb F G A


EDITING (to a chosen key):

- Use the "replace" feature of any text editor

- Most songs use four chords or less ( 1 > 5 > 4 > 6 )

- Beware: the number 7 could be the seventh scale note or a 7th chord
