Full size edition. Begins with basic music theory about scales and keys and teaches how to transpose several songs with and without the capo. You'll explore some typical chord progressions by swapping numbers (one, four, five) for the chord names (D, G, A), and you'll study the Nashville Numbering System in depth by examining different notation styles and converting several well-known songs to number charts. If you're interested in why the capo works, or if you're a songwriter or gigging musician who needs to know how to read, write, and understand Nashville Number charts, this book is for you. 29 pp.   More Details...
