Product Overview

Series: Fake Book

The Nashville Number System is the standard way for a professional country musician to notate a song. The system has been around since the 1950s, and it rapidly became widespread within the country music community because of how efficiently it can represent music. In essence, a Nashville number chart conveys the harmony, key, meter, rhythm, phrase structure, instrumentation, arrangement, and form of a song – all on a single piece of paper. An introduction is included that thoroughly explains how to use the book. Lyrics are not included.
